False Impersonation Case

Deputies with the Pasco Sheriff's Office arrested Charles T. "Chuck" Barry, on one count of False Impersonation of a law Enforcement Officer and improper exhibition of a firearm.

Barry drove through the Dunkin Donut drive thru at 10829 State Road 54 in Trinity on November 6. Barry displayed a law enforcement Sheriff Star Badge and identified himself as law enforcement and requested a discount on his order of donuts.

When he was refused a discount Barry held up a firearm which was still in a holster and stated, "See I am a cop!" The witness said Barry never pointed the firearm at him and never took it out of his holster but did display it to him.

On November 7, Barry again came through the drive thru and his vehicle tag was obtained by the manager.

On November 12, a surveillance was set up at Dunkin Donuts and a Deputy with the Pasco Sheriff's Office observed Barry driving away from the business. A traffic stop was conducted and while speaking with Barry the deputy observed he had a law enforcement badge in his wallet. He was also carrying a .38 caliber revolver in his front pocket. He was positively identified by store personnel and arrested on above mentioned charges.
