Nekoosa man charged with impersonating an officer
A Nekoosa man has been charged in Adams County with possession of a firearm while intoxicated, impersonating a peace officer, possession of a firearm by a felon, and carrying a concealed weapon. Police said last month 22-year old Thomas Dobberthein III had allegedly flashed a shield shaped badge and told several people at The Cruisers by the Lakes Bar in the Town of Rome that he was a Marquette County Deputy. As a result of a traffic stop on Highway 13, a search revealed a Glock 22 40-caliber handgun and a full case of beer in the back seat. A Preliminary Breath Test showed .104. A records check showed Dobberthein had a previous out-of state felony conviction and no permit to carry a concealed weapon. Dobberthein was released on a $1000 signature bond.
