A Lexington man is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Fayette District Court on a charge of impersonating an officer.
Shawn Richter Lindon, 59, was arrested Saturday by Lexington police. A police report says that on July 14, Lindon approached a neighbor who lives behind him and spoke to the neighbor about a barking dog.
Lindon pulled out a gold shield with the words "special investigator" on it and said he was a detective, according to the report filed in district court. He told the neighbor to put the dog inside the house or he would take the neighbor to court, the report said.
Lindon is scheduled for 1 p.m. arraignment before District Judge Megan Lake Thornton. Impersonating a peace officer is a class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison.
