Mustapha Farrakhan, the son of controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, is in a bit of hot water with the Illinois Police Standards and Training Board.

He’s been allegedly enjoying the privileges of a cop, though he’s not been working as one for years.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that he drives an unmarked HPD squad car and is still registered as a police officer with the department.

“We opened a preliminary investigation after the Sun-Times told us about their investigation,” Kevin McClain, executive director of the Board, told the Associated Press.

Mustapha’s continued association with the department allows him access to carry a badge and concealed weapon on his person. And it allows him to ride around in an unmarked car, which is often used when his father is traveling in his motorcade.

The former cop clocked 23 hours in 2007 and 132 in 2008, the last year he filed any shifts.
