Man Arrested for Impersonating a Police Officer
Yesterday 02/11/2016 at 5:10 PM, Suspect Ronald Taylor entered the Golden Corral on Wilma Rudolph Blvd and, while ordering food, he produced a concealed handgun and badge and said to the clerk that the drink is usually free. A CPD Detective, who was in front of Taylor in the line, asked him if he was a Police Officer. Taylor confirmed that he was a Police Officer and said he was with DHS, the Department of Homeland Security, and was in town on some business. Taylor is an Insurance Agent in Kentucky with a concealed permit and badge from the State of Kentucky. Taylor was in possession of a loaded Springfield XD 45 and a loaded Ruger 380 handgun. Taylor was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on an Impersonating a Police Officer charge.
I think I mentioned it before, many moons ago: Don’t even bother with the stupid badges, they are a crap magnet on their own. And this guy double down on the stupid. He deserves every little bit of penalty for breaking the law.
