Ky. Man Says He's a Cop in Motorcyle Listing on eBay

BURLINGTON, Ky. --

The Boone County Sheriff's Office has accused a man of impersonating a peace officer because of something he did online.

The sheriff's office said William Cassidy, 46 of Burlington, listed a motorcycle for sale on eBay as a police seizure by his department.

During a recorded phone call by investigators, Cassidy told the operative he worked for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the sheriff's office said.

Cassidy was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with impersonating a peace officer. He was charged with forgery in Boone County in March.
