Police arrested a man and confiscated a car after an incident with a spotlight in Lexington early Thursday morning.
Police say a driver flagged down an officer along Leestown Road around 12:30 a.m. The driver told the officer a white Crown Victoria equipped with a spotlight police cruisers use followed them, and the driver shined the light at them. A short time later, an officer on patrol spotted the Crown Vic at the Speedway on Versailles Road. Police say the men in the car told them they just bought it Wednesday, and admitted shining the spotlight at other cars as a joke.
Police had the car towed. Officers say the spotlight will be removed.
Police arrested the driver and charged him with traffic offenses.
