Angry Grlfriends Expose U.S. Marshal Imposter
An AP newswire article, via CNN, reports that:
To some people, Richard Kudlik possessed the macho allure of movie star Tommy Lee Jones' portrayals of a deputy U.S. marshal on a manhunt.More here.
They say he had the badge, raid jacket, flashing lights on his Dodge pickup truck, even a gun. It all felt real, right down to his earnestness, recalled one ex-girlfriend, Pamela Brown.
"Honesty and loyalty is what he always tried to project," Brown said.
But the real U.S. marshals -- and a chorus of angry women -- say Kudlik was only acting.
Kudlik, 43, was arrested at his home on Wednesday after Brown and other women outed him earlier this month on a Web site featuring a wanted poster. The site calls him a "lying, cheating U.S. Marshal impersonator" and reveals his true identity as a long-married maintenance man.
