ERIE, Pa. (AP) - A northwestern Pennsylvania county 911 employee has been suspended without pay because of charges that he impersonated a state police Liquor Control Enforcement officer while at a bar.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 34-year-old Jeffrey Harmon, who earns $34,000 a year as a systems operator at the Erie County 911 center. He faces charges of impersonating a public servant, harassment and disorderly conduct for an incident about 1 a.m. March 16.
The Erie Times-News reports that's when Erie police say Harmon was telling other bar patrons that he was a state trooper and, more specifically, involving in liquor control enforcement.
Police say an off-duty city police officer and an off-duty county sheriff's deputy overheard the man's remarks.
Harmony faces a preliminary hearing May 30.
