Police said they were called to Wendy’s because a customer was arguing with the staff.
Officers said Stover was demanding a law enforcement discount and started threatening to report staff to corporate for not giving it to him.
According to police, Stover was a regular at that Wendy’s for the past two years. Workers said he used to get a discount at the restaurant because he had a friend who was a cashier there, according to the arrest report, but when that worker left their job, Stover started claiming he was a law enforcement officer.
The manager at the store told investigators that Stover would often tell workers he was an undercover DEA agent and would occasionally flash a badge when asked for proof, the report stated.
Investigators said Stover denied ever claiming to be a DEA agent, however, he did admit to carrying a concealed carry permit badge, which he claimed he showed the employees because they asked to see it.
Stover faces a charge of impersonating a law enforcement officer.
