Titusville – Man Arrested for Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer
Titusville Police have arrested a local man for impersonating a law enforcement officer.
Albert James McDaniel, 48, of Titusville, was arrested on August 20th 2019, and charged with Falsely Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer.
At approximately 1:00 PM on Tuesday August 20th 2019, Titusville Police responded to a report of a suspicious man presenting a law enforcement badge and requesting a discount at a local McDonald’s restaurant.
Police quickly conducted a traffic stop on the suspect, where he presented a Corrections Officer badge along with his identification. Officers confirmed that the badge was not an official law enforcement credential and the suspect was taken into custody.
The preliminary investigation has revealed that the suspect had been using the false law enforcement identification as a means to obtain discounts and gratuities from local business.
The suspect was a former employee of a private prisoner transport company based out of Nashville, Tennessee. However, he was dismissed from that position in July of 2018. The suspect was not a certified law enforcement officer.
McDaniel was booked into the Brevard County Jail with a $2000 bond.
