OVIEDO, Fla. -

A central Florida teenager is accused of impersonating a police officer.

A Seminole County Sheriff's deputy stopped the 16-year-old on Saturday as he was driving in a silver Impala with blue police lights.

Deputies say the teen was wearing a shirt that had "police" on it. He was also carrying law enforcement equipment, including a handcuff key. He also had a loaded handgun in the car.

Orlando television station WFTV reports the teen is charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Both are felony charges.

Deputies did not say whether the teen had attempted to pull anyone over.
