FLEMINGSBURG | A Fleming County man was recently arrested for impersonating a police officer.
According to an arrest citation, 22-year-old Dylan Emmons of Ewing, was arrested after making a phone call to his girlfriend's parents and pretending to be a police officer.
Flemingsburg Police Chief Randy Sergent said his officers had responded to a home on Foxspring Avenue after receiving a call about a domestic dispute.
Shortly after officers arrived, the mother of his girlfriend received a call on her cell phone.
"I advised her to answer it and place it on speaker phone to hear what the the other party was going to say," Officer Daniel Pollock said in the arrest citation.
Pollock said the father answered the phone.
"The party on the other line asked to speak with (the girlfriend)," Pollock said. "The caller identified himself as Officer Don with the Flemingsburg State Police."
Pollock said he identified himself as an officer with the Flemingsburg Police Department and informed Emmons that it was a crime to impersonate an officer.
"He called the parents' phone and identified himself as an officer in order to talk to the girlfriend," Sergent said. "Apparently, the girlfriend wouldn't answer, so he thought this would be best."
Emmons was arrested on Feb. 21 and lodged in the Mason County Detention Center. He was released the same day.
