Former Nevada police officer charged with impersonation www.privateofficer.com
HENDERSON, Nev. June 15 2012– A former police officer allegedly posing as a police officer is in trouble with the law.
According to the arrest report, Adam Brooks was pulled over for a traffic violation in Henderson and showed the officer an active police officer’s badge but claimed to be a retired officer from the Henderson Police Department and the New York City Police Department. Brooks resigned from the Henderson Police Department in 2008.
Police say Brooks did not work long enough to qualify for retirement and the badge he was carrying was not department issued.
Brooks is a known bounty hunter who opened up Las Vegas Fugitive Recovery after leaving the force.
Police say they were able to tie Brooks to an incident that was reported several months earlier.
In that case, a man matching Brooks description entered a McDonald’s restaurant looking for the boyfriend of an employee. According to the arrest report, Brooks portrayed himself as a police officer to several employees while getting information and eventually taking the woman’s boyfriend into custody for a bail violation.
Brooks is facing one count of impersonating an officer.
