BUNNELL, Fla. — A man is accused of falsely impersonating an officer at a Florida Wendy’s to get a discount, the Bunnell Police Department said.
On Monday, police were called to a Wendy’s on Commerce Parkway for a report of suspicious activity.
Investigators said that Jesse Stover had asked to be given a law enforcement discount for his purchase.
Witnesses told police that Stover quickly flashed a gold-colored badge to the Wendy’s staff and demanded the discount again.
The staff members denied his request and they started arguing.
During the argument, Stover said he was not a police officer but worked for the Drug Enforcement Administration as an undercover agent.
Investigators said Stover was a regular customer at the Wendy’s and had been asking for the discount for more than two years.
Police said the badge that was used to impersonate a law enforcement officer was a concealed weapon permit badge, which looks very similar to a law enforcement badge.
