Warrant alleges Pawnee County man impersonated police

Ponca City Now - November 29, 2018 10:24 am

On Jan. 10, 2018, Pawnee County Sheriff Mike Waters and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol requested the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation investigate allegations of Pawnee County Emergency Management Director Mark Randell (date of birth: 4/11/74) impersonating a police officer.

On several occasions between April 2015 and January 2018, Randell was reported to have responded to emergency calls for service, made a traffic stop, and made an arrest, all while taking action and having an appearance that would lead a reasonable person to believe he was a police officer.

An investigation was conducted and submitted to the district attorney for consideration.

On Nov. 20, 2018, a misdemeanor warrant was issued for Randell for impersonating a public officer and arresting without authority.
