MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) — A man is disputing allegations that he pretended to be a New Hampshire police officer.
WMUR-TV reports Merrimack police have accused 22-year-old Obadiah Croteau of false personation of law enforcement and other charges.
They say he was seen driving a green Dodge Charger with an overhead light bar, which led many to believe it was a state police cruiser. They also said he was carrying a mounted computer laptop and cameras.
Police said he had an ID card printer and cards with titles such as "executive protection officer" and "first responder." They accuse him of showing up at accidents wearing a security uniform, saying he was a first responder.
Croteau said the car belongs to his company, Propel Entertainment, which provides bodyguard services. Authorities said neither Croteau nor the company is registered with the state.
