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.
