Albany man arrested for impersonating cop

February 20, 2006

Albany -- A 20-year-old Albany man is behind bars, accused of claiming to be a police officer.

Investigators say William Simmons was talking with Turner Job Corps students through the fence surrounding the center about 3:30 Sunday afternoon. When security officers from Job Corps approached Simmons, he flashed a badge and said he was a police officer.

Security held Simmons while real Albany cops were called, and he was arrested.
