Cookeville Man Arrested For Impersonating Officer

A March 8th arraignment date has been set for a Cookeville man, accused of posing as a drug enforcement agent as he robbed someone of more than 100 Percocet pills this month. Police say 31-year-old Bradley Shane Spivey of Brown Avenue was arrested after an investigation of an incident on Scenic Drive. Spivey is accused of showing up at a home there and waving a paper that claimed to be a warrant. He allegedly took a bottle of pills from the victim, and threatened him with a handgun when he asked for further identification. Police say the paper Spivey used in the robbery was, in fact, an old warrant -- one with his name on it from Jackson County. They say the victim also picked him out of a photo line-up.
