SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - A south-central Kentucky man has been charged with twice posing as an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Commonwealth-Journal reported that Jonathan Fitzgerald Cannada, 30, approached Pulaski County Constable Mike Wallace during an incident Tuesday while Wallace responded to a call.

Wallace didn't immediately arrest Cannada but chose to do so after the man claimed for a second time to be an FBI agent.

Wallace says he made several phone calls after the incident and discovered Cannada was not on any records as a federal investigator.

Cannada was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney.
