Police say the security officer suffered a cut to his right elbow and bottom lip.
Investigators say Turner, "made several statements to the employees at the bus station and officers on scene that he is a U.S. Marshal in an effort to gain a bus ticket at the station and then to avoid arrest with police."

Turner is charged with impersonating a peace officer, assault and criminal trespassing.
He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections and is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
