The director of the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport has been arrested after deputies say he lied to them, telling them he was a cop and even flashing a badge.

Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport Director Rob Barnett was arrested on a warrant for impersonating a peace officer nearly a week after deputies arrived at his home to follow up on a disturbance call.

While deputies were investigating the call on Jan. 22, Barnett allegedly told them he worked in law enforcement before showing them a badge.

No action on his employment as airport director has been taken at this time.

We'll continue to follow this developing story.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
