Man arrested again for impersonating a firefighter

Posted: Updated:
DENTON, Texas -

A man who was arrested a few months ago after police said he pretended to be a Dallas firefighter was arrested again over the weekend for impersonating a Denton firefighter.

Denton Fire Department spokesman John Argumaniz said Terrance King called 911 on Sunday from Lake Carolyn in Irving. He was transported to Las Colinas Medical Center with unknown injuries.

Once he was there, he apparently told the hospital staff he was a Denton firefighter. He even had some clothing that belonged to the department.

But staffers grew suspicious and contacted Irving police, who followed up with the Denton Fire Department. It turns out the firefighter clothing was reported stolen.

According to Argumaniz, other firefighters remembered King showing up at a Denton fire station one day asking for a ride-along. They turned him down.

King was arrested for impersonating a public servant and for outstanding traffic warrants.

He spent a night in the Irving jail and then was transferred to the Lew Sterrett Justice Center.

In April he was arrested when he showed up at a fire station in Plano wearing full Dallas-Fire Rescue gear and claiming to be a firefighter.  In that case the uniform was also reported stolen.
