Nutjob alert. :rofl: He did have a carry permit for his pistol, so at least he's not facing a charge for that... :crazy: The "Fugitive Recovery Agent" ID is the best part of this one IMHO. :supergrin:
Holly man charged with impersonating cop
Mike Martindale / The Detroit News
Clarkston -- A 47-year-old Holly man is facing charges of impersonating a police officer after he was arrested driving around with a fake badge, police clothing and a handgun on his waist.
Koon Sun Yee was arraigned on two charges of impersonating an officer -- a misdemeanor punishable by up to 93 days in jail and fines -- on Thursday after a medical worker reported him leaving an Independence Township medical building on March 31 wearing a gun and what appeared to be a Waterford police badge.
Workers also reported he had been seen at the building on other occasions wearing firefighter clothing and had told others he worked as a Waterford dispatcher.
"We're still looking into this and trying to determine whether this was just a case of him misleading others into thinking he was a police officer for ego gratification or perhaps something more serious," said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard. "The important thing is it was reported to us, we located the individual and have seized items which he does not appear to have appropriate or authorized use."
Yee -- who Bouchard said is not a police officer, fireman or a dispatcher -- was pulled over in a drugstore parking lot, where deputies also recovered emergency lights in his vehicle, a mobile police radio,and a .40 caliber handgun strapped to his waist and two clips loaded with ammunition.
Yee was also in possession of a North Oakland Fire Authority Paramedic badge, rescue badge, fire ID with the name "Charlie Yee," a Fugitive Recovery agent ID with his picture and his photo with the name "Charlie Hayes" and a pair of steel handcuffs.
Yee, who could not be reached for comment Friday, was also found in possession of a generic shirt with "Police Officer" and a sewn-on police badge. While he is legally licensed to carry a weapon, according to state records, investigators have been unable to determine if he is or has ever been associated with any public safety agency.
"We will be contacting other departments to see if they have any reports about someone impersonating a police officer," Bouchard said. "These happen from time to time, and we have had incidents in which people have been pulled over and even robbed in their homes by people pretending to be police."
Clarkston 52-2 District Judge Kelley Kostin ordered Yee released on $5,000 personal bond pending an April 22 pre-trial exam on the charges.
