Man sentenced to community service
PRESQUE ISLE — A local man who was charged with impersonating a public servant was sentenced to serve 50 hours of community service and was ordered to attend counseling.
Michael G. Brown, 29, of Presque Isle, was charged July 17, 2009, with impersonating a public servant, after he reportedly told an NMCC security officer he was with the Warden Service and was “going after ATVs.” The security officer subsequently contacted police, with Officer Kevin Reed of the Presque Isle Police Department responding to investigate.
Reed found Brown in possession of a loaded Glock .40 caliber handgun, as well as a police badge. Brown was taken into custody and charged accordingly.
According to the D.A.’s office, the case was filed in Presque Isle District Court June 10, following Brown’s completion of 50 hours of community service and an unspecified period of counseling.
