Danny Jenkins

PIKEVILLE, Ky. — A Pikeville man was arrested, after he went to the Pikeville Police station and allegedly claimed to be a Michigan state trooper.

Danny Jenkins, 51, went to the station and asked to speak to a detective, saying he had sensitive information to discuss. He then spoke to a detective about several well-known criminal cases, but was unable to provide any proof that he was a law enforcement officer.

The detective then asked if Jenkins had any weapons on him. Jenkins reportedly said, “I am the weapon,” then allegedly took an aggressive stance toward the officer while standing on his tiptoes.

Jenkins was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer and terroristic threatening.
