Police seek man who impersonated officer

May 28, 2006


Osage County Sheriff's officers have asked for help to find a man who allegedly impersonated a police officer and assaulted a woman Saturday morning.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office, the suspect is a white male, 6-feet tall with black hair and a slight build. He wore a gray shirt and blue jeans.

The man had pulled the woman over at 7:38 a.m. on Kansas Highway 31 east of Osage City. A passerby, who drove a blue Dodge Dakota truck, interrupted the assault, according to the news release.

The suspect drove a small, dark sedan, which had a light bar in the back window and flashing headlights.

Officers are also trying to find the witness who stopped the assault. Anyone who sees the suspect or who has information is encouraged to call local law enforcement, the sheriff's office at (785) 828-3121, or the Osage County Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-877-OS-CRIME.

How about the fat dude with earrings who works security and wheres his security badge on his belt and glares when you walk by and smirk at him. I was praying to God that he did something stupid and asked me who,what,where and why. Question Authority folks.That tshirts been around since the sixties.

I know who you're talking about . . . the janitor who wants to be a cop. Fat-boy worked as a janitor at Allen Press for a while; asked to do security for them, but was told to stick to his broom and dustpan.

Fatboy reminds me of a character I encountered when I lived in Madison,Wi. for a winter named "Scanner Dan".Dan was a local icon. He would walk up and down State street(madtown's Mass st.)with a scanner on his belt and act like a cop on foot beat.Oh yeah,he'd stop in local businesses and proudly ask "everything OK"?If there was a wreck or fight downtown you'd always find Dan either on-scene or enroute. I'd see him securing the allyways ay night.always vigilant and alert.His scanner would ring out a loud tone and Dan would be on it.Citizen on patrol.Mental health questionable. I feared for Dan's safety though.I was afraid that someday he would respond to a scene before the real cops and get his a$$ kicked. I would laugh mine off if fatboy ever did that!!
