David Brown, 61, appeared before magistrates in Ipswich on Friday and pleaded not guilty to impersonating a police constable and using a motor vehicle without insurance.
Brown, of Masons Drive, Great Blakenham, is accused of impersonating a member of the police force on January 5 this year in Ipswich.
