Missouri Man Charged with Impersonating an Officer
Authorities say a Branson man who is charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer was arrested after trying to arrest someone.
Forty-one-year-old Kristopher Peters also was charged Tuesday with kidnapping in the case. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that a probable cause statement says Peters was wearing a T-shirt that read “POLICE US Marshal” on Monday when he tried to arrest someone in Branson.
The statement says Peters also had a gun and handcuffs on his belt. The statement says Peters has a previous charge for false impersonation. Branson police are urging anyone who was been pulled over by a small red vehicle with emergency equipment to come forward.
