If Joshua D. Kay wanted to be in law enforcement, he certainly has gotten his wish. Kay, 30, has been charged in Wisconsin for a second time for impersonating an officer. What makes this charge somewhat unique is that Kay was serving time on the first offense when he was charged for the second time.
The prosecutors charge that Kay has been telling other inmates that he is actually a sheriff’s deputy, working undercover to investigate other deputies. He was already serving for three misdemeanors, including his 2007 conviction for turning on flashing red lights and a siren on his personal car to pursue a speeder. Unfortunately for Kay, the other car was being driven by an off-duty police officer.
It is a rare to see a charge based just on an oral representation, particularly in a jail where prison personas are often manufactured.
