Cambridge man arrested in speeding ticket scam

Cambridge man arrested in speeding ticket scam

A Cambridge man posing as a cop chasing speeders was arrested yesterday as he tried to shake down drivers for ``whatever (they) had'' if they wanted to avoid a ticket, police said.

Wynter Aiguier, 21, a passenger in a Lexus, used a blue light to stop a 28-year-old Watertown man about 6:35 a.m. on Soldiers Field Road before asking for his license and registration, according to state police Lt. Paul Maloney.

``After he reapproached the vehicle, the (suspect) says he should give him an $85 ticket for the violation and demands whatever he has as a payoff to avoid the ticket,'' Maloney said.

When the driver declined to hand over the bribe, Aiguier allegedly admonished him for speeding before allowing him to leave.

The Watertown man drove to the Brighton state police barracks, where he provided a description of the car and two suspects.

About 30 minutes later, Cambridge police stopped the Lexus at Cambridge and Prospect streets and arrested Aiguier, who was identified by the victim.

For now, Aiguier is charged with extortion, impersonating a police officer and disturbing the peace. He was held on $5,000 bail, pending his appearance in Brighton District Court today.

The driver of the Lexus, whose name police withheld, was taken into custody, but later released. Maloney said he could face charges pending further investigation into two similar incidents reported yesterday morning.

``Given the situation, the driver may also face charges,'' Maloney said.
