Police: Philadelphia Clerk Claimed To Be Cop, Deputy
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police say a city man who works as a clerk in the sheriff’s office falsely claimed to be a police officer then a deputy when he pulled a gun at an auto repair shop.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for 45-year-old Barry Young who was arraigned Sunday on charges including impersonating an officer for the incident about 8 a.m. Saturday at a Midas Muffler shop.
Police say Young blocked a parking lot entrance with his Lincoln Navigator then became angry when the manager and two employees asked him to move.
Police say Young — who has a license to carry a gun — cocked the weapon, jammed it into the manager’s midsection then hit him in the head. Police say Young claimed to be a cop then a deputy.
Young faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 12.
