Louisville man accused of impersonating a Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputy
He allegedly insisted that he was a sheriff's deputy, even going as far as to "make a fake phone call pretending to tell the Sheriff to call the Louisville Metro Police chief," according to an arrest report.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he was caught impersonating a Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputy.
According to an arrest report, the incident took place on Sunday, April 12, just after 7 a.m., on S. Jackson Street, near E. Chestnut Street.
Police say 25-year-old Brandon Savage told a Louisville Metro Police officer that he was a Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputy, and that he wanted to report an assault.
"Knowing he is not, I warned the subject not to impersonate a police officer," the LMPD officer wrote.
But that didn't stop Savage, according to the arrest report. He allegedly continued telling the officer he was a sheriff's deputy, even going as far as to "make a fake phone call pretending to tell the Sheriff to call the Louisville Metro Police chief," according to the report.
The officer allegedly told Savage a second time not to impersonate a sheriff's deputy. According to the arrest report, Savage responded by insisting that he wanted the officer to make out a report for a third degree assault charge, because -- according to Savage -- it was an assault on a police officer.
The LMPD officer said Savage became "tired of my disrespect for not believing him."
Savage was then arrested and charged with one felony count of Impersonating a Peace Officer.
