While browsing the Courier Journal, this story caught my eye. During 2007 in November, a group of teenage girls went out bowling. After bowling, they drove away. Next thing they knew a person appearing to be a police officer pulled them over.
((Though the female "officer" wasn't in uniform and was driving a Lexus, she said she was a police officer and flashed a badge, Moore said -- so Moore did as she was told.))
The ‘cop’ ordered her to take a sobriety test. Here’s where it gets slightly strange…
((Yet when Moore told the officer that her parents were on the way, the woman got into her car and sped off, according to court records, first crashing into Moore's car and nearly crushing one of her friends.))
Get this; the woman that flashed the badge wasn’t a cop at all. She did have a day job, a lawyer. That’s right a lawyer!
Read on from the post
((The woman turned out not to be an officer at all, but instead a lawyer, Melissa G. Ash, now accused of impersonating a police officer. And it wasn't the first time Ash, 36, had faced such a charge.))
That’s right the CJ is reporting that this lawyer found herself convicted three times of the same thing.
((…pretending to be an FBI agent and an alcohol control officer and badging her way into bars on Baxter Avenue, where she got free drinks and threw out customers for various reasons, according to court records.))
I’m not sure what she gets out of this, besides free drinks, but I don’t know why she did this not just once but a few times. She took in a plea of not guilty.
This whole thing seems so strange. Why would someone with such a successfully career endanger with such puzzling behavior, allegedly?
