Incident: Impersonation of a Police Officer

I remember when David Cox got arrested for impersonating a police officer. Now he is a paid acting Lieutenant in the Salisbury Fire Department. Thanks Richard A. Hoppes.

If you want to know how to get off on those charges just go the the Fire Department and ask David Cox.
