Snyder man charged with impersonating police officer

A man who claimed to be a police officer and brandished a badge was arrested Saturday by Buffalo Police.

Douglas H. Naylon, 27, of Snyder, was charged with criminal impersonation of an officer.

Police said Naylon was staying at a downtown hotel and, after being denied entry to a closed bar, became irate, claimed he was a police officer and demanded special treatment from the hotel.

A further investigation, police said, revealed that Naylon is not an officer with any law enforcement agency. Police said they confiscated a badge inscribed with “Special Police.”
