FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA. (WJLA) - The son of a Fairfax County police officer has been arrested for taking his father's police cruiser out for a joyride - and borrowing his uniform while he was at it.

Authorities Tuesday confirmed a report by the Washington Post that James Michael Puebla Berling, 27, of Centreville, along with a friend, took Berling's father's cruiser out for a "high-speed drive," including activating the emergency lights, wearing the shirt from his father's uniform and even firing a gun.

Berling and his friend were reportedly arrested by Fairfax County police after a Virginia State police officer saw the vehicle speeding down Route 29 in Centreville with the lights blaring shortly after 1 a.m. on March 16.
After the state trooper followed the vehicle, it pulled over into a parking lot and Berling and his friend, identified as 18-year-old Caitlyn Lee of Centreville, fled on foot. Police reported set up a perimeter in the area and were able to catch Berling, who was wearing his father's uniform's shirt when they caught him.
The Post reports that Berling's father was out of town at the time and was not aware his son had taken his vehicle and uniform.
Berling is facing charges of unauthorized use of vehicle, reckless handling of a firearm and impersonating a law enforcement officer.
Lee is facing charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

I'm thinking he's a plant for the weed he had on hi. But, yes it seems as if this loser is a real loser. Copper-dad won't let go, friendo!
