Man pleads guilty to impersonating police officer

DENVER – A 36-year-old man pleaded guilty Friday to impersonating a police officer.

Leslie Simpson was arrested on April 18 after police received a report that he was identifying himself as an officer in the 3200 block of South Broadway.

In April, he told 9NEWS that it was all a "misunderstanding."

"I would never indicate that I am a police officer, I am a bounty enforcement agent, aka fugitive recovery agent, aka I'm a bounty hunter," he said.

Court documents quote two witnesses who tell police Simpson asked them to leave a car dealership, saying they were trespassing. Simpson allegedly told them "I'm a police officer you need to leave now."

Simpson was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered not to have badges of any kind.
