When police called Sardinia police they were told Keith’s name wasn’t on the officer roster. Later, the Sardinia police chief told Middletown police that Keith hadn’t been with the department for three years, he never was a sworn-in officer and he rode around with the chief and completed paperwork.
When asked again if he was a police officer in Sardinia, Keith answered, “yes,” the report read.

Keith’s wife, a passenger in the car, told police her husband never had been to a police academy. Keith’s ID was confiscated and police said it would either be destroyed or mailed back to Sardinia.
Keith was charged with impersonating a police officer, a first-degree misdemeanor, and speeding. His pretrial hearing is March 6, according to court records.
