That's a simple yes or no question. His answer would have raised suspicion with me as well - because his answer didn't really answer the question.
Okay... and when the cop's "question" isn't a question at all?

I was walking home from the post office one evening, a cop rolled into the parking lot I was walking through and simply said "You look familiar".
He repeated this several times when I didn't answer.
