TATEVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) – A Pulaski County man is in jail after police say he impersonated a state trooper and threatened a 15-year-old.

Deputies say 36-year-old Kenneth Gill went to a home on Holiness Church Road in the Tateville community Tuesday night and stood in the road spinning nunchucks.

According to an arrest citation, Gill tried to get the 15-year-old to “come down into the road and fight him.”

Gill then stepped onto the property, saying he was the owner and had a right to because he was a Kentucky State Trooper, before leaving the area.

After a lengthy search, deputies say a neighbor found Gill under a porch. While being arrested, Gill told deputies that he was an FBI agent, and had to be forced into a patrol car.

Gill is charged with impersonating a peace officer, resisting arrest, carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct (2nd degree), wanton endangerment (2nd degree), terroristic threatening (3rd degree) and criminal trespassing (3rd degree).
