The shirt might have been the tip-off that the guy wasn't who he pretended to be.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Canby police said they're looking for a man who stopped a teenage driver late Wednesday and handcuffed her.

He was wearing a dark blue shirt, police said, and it read: "Under Cover Police."

"An undercover officer obviously isn't going to advertise that," said Canby Officer Chris Mead.

He said the woman wasn't harmed.

The man, in an ’80s Ford Bronco, flashed his headlights at the 18-year-old and forced her to the side of the road, police said.

After ordering her to do sobriety tests, police said, the man cuffed her, searched the vehicle, talked into what appeared to be a handheld radio, uncuffed her and fled.

Mead said he didn't take anything from the vehicle, and police don't know what he was up to.

"It's very disturbing," Mead said. He said he hadn't heard of similar stops locally or in Oregon.

Mead said a witness saw the stop from across the street, and officers planned to distribute a sketch of the man.
