A volunteer firefighter in Louisiana is facing charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer after he entered two establishments wearing his fire department uniform and a gun, and identified himself as an arson investigator. Michael Shane Miller was arrested by the Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office following the January 12, 2024 incident.
Miller reportedly entered a credit union and a gun store claiming he was required by Jefferson Davis Parish to wear his gun. Beauregard Parish Deputies contacted Jefferson Parish and state fire agencies and confirmed Miller was not a law enforcement officer. He was charged with False Personation of a Peace Officer. Here is a link to the statute.
