Utah man impersonated a cop — then threatened to shoot purported ‘undocumented immigrants’: witnesses

Published

on

A Utah man has been charged with impersonating a police officer and threatening to kill two men whom he accused of being undocumented immigrants.

Deseret News reports that 41-year-old Eagle Mountain, Utah resident Jerred Martin Loftus allegedly accosted two men who were walking in a local park and accused them of being “illegal aliens.”

One of the men told police that Loftus told them that he had a gun — and threatened that he would “not only shoot him and Daniel, but would bury the two of them in the woods.”

Loftus quickly fled the scene when one of the men pulled out his phone to call police, however, and the man was able to pick out Loftus’s photo out of a lineup.

When police searched Loftus’ car, they found “a gun belt, handgun and several magazines,” according to Deseret News. Loftus subsequently admitted he told the men that he was a corrections officer, but he denied that he threatened either of the men with his weapon.

Loftus faces potential charges of impersonating an officer and aggravated assault.

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
