Fake Cop Busted
Hendersonville Police arrested a man impersonating a police officer while trying to break into a home. Glora Gonzalez says the man tried to get into her house and when she tried to push him out and lock the door he started screaming he was an officer.
Gonzalez called police who showed up and confronted 41-year-old Kenneth Strickland just outside her home. Police say Strickland challenged officers to a fight and was visibly intoxicated or impaired. Officers tazed Strickland when he refused to comply with orders and engaged them in an altercation. Stickland was eventually taken into custody and officers say he admitted to being high on methamphetamine.
Strickland was charged with assaulting a woman, breaking and entering, possession of methamphetamine and impersonating an officer. He remains in the Henderson County Jail under $8,100 bond.
