Jacksonville Man Indicted for Impersonating Federal Marshal

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The U.S. Attorney's office at Little Rock says a federal grand jury has accused a fast-food restaurant night manager who also pursued bail-jumpers of impersonating a U.S. marshal.  The indictment was announced yesterday.

Authorities say 33-year-old Jonathon Horton, who lives in a mobile home at Jacksonville, carried a badge in a holder around his neck.  They also say Horton had a sign in the rear window of his truck that said "U.S. Fugitive Task Force K-9 Unit."  Authorities say there is no such unit.

A number of residents complained that Horton represented himself as a federal marshal.  One woman said Horton identified himself as a marshal while looking for a man who skipped out on his bond.
