The force said: “An allegation was made that a member of staff had produced a badge/ card and instructed a driver to pull over, before advising the driver that they were an off-duty police officer and gave them a warning for dangerous driving.

“This was a member of police staff, not a police officer, which is why it ended up with misconduct proceedings.“It was a male member of staff involved and the incident happened in Scunthorpe.”
