June 15--A former Henderson police officer was arrested on a charge of impersonating a police officer in an incident dating back to October.
Adam Brooks, who worked as a bail agent at the time of the incident, entered the McDonald's at 310 N. Boulder Highway claiming to be a cop. Based on witness testimonies in the police report, Brooks claimed restaurant employees were obstructing the law if they didn't answer his questions in his attempt to track down a co-worker who had a warrant out for his arrest.
He also disrupted the home of the mother of the wanted employee's girlfriend under the guise of being a special agent, the report said.
Henderson Police looked into the situation after Brooks tried to use an ID card that claimed he was a law-enforcement retiree after being pulled over for a traffic violation in March, according to the report.
The report said Brooks had worked for Henderson Police department for five years but that he did not qualify for retirement benefits.
Brooks was arrested on one charge of impersonating a police officer, a gross misdemeanor offense.
