A man who was charged last week with trying to impersonate police in Berkeley and San Leandro has been charged with the same crime in Oakland after he reportedly used flashing lights to try to pull someone over Sunday.
A 20-year-old Oakland man who was charged previously with impersonating a police officer has been arrested again on suspicion of pretending to be a cop in both Berkeley and San Leandro, authorities announced Tuesday.

WHERE IS MY BAGUETTE? The Bread Garden, which opened its doors at 2912 Domingo Avenue in November 1973, is shutting up shop. Its owner, David Morris, is finally making good on his threat to move the bakery elsewhere. He plans to open a new bakery in Paso Robles, in an old building that housed another bakery from 1923 to 1973. “One statistic sums it up,” said Morris. “When I opened the bakery in 1973 I was bakery #8 in Berkeley. The last time I counted there were 38 bakeries in Berkeley. The market isn’t any bigger than it was in 1973. There is intense competition for the bakery dollar.” Morris said he plans to close the Claremont neighborhood bakery, home to the 19th-century baguette, cheese rolls, cinnamon swirl bread, and pizza bread, among other things, by July 1.
