Staunton Man Charged with Impersonating a Firefighter
Jamie Scott Davis
Waynesboro Police Department Press Release
The Waynesboro Police Department has charged a Staunton man after he arrived on a rescue call earlier in the year masquerading as a firefighter.
Charges against Jamie Scott Davis, 25 years old, are two misdemeanors: impersonation of a firefighter with intent to make another believe he was such a public safety personnel and possession of a police radio.
On May 14, 2013 at 6:00 PM, the Waynesboro First Aid Crew responded to the 600 block of N Bayard Ave for a 46 year old female patient who was having abdominal pain. While WFAC personnel were tending to the patient, Davis appeared at the residence and indicated to the crewmembers that he was a firefighter with medical training and could offer assistance. Crewmembers were suspicious of Davis because he was not in a uniform nor did he display any insignia or name badge. They did notice that he had a police style radio in his possession. The crewmembers did not allow Davis to assist with the patient who was eventually transported to the hospital. The incident was reported to police two days later.
The Waynesboro charges were served on Davis on August 8 at Middle River Regional Jail after he was arrested by the Virginia State Police on similar charges. He is being held on $1000 bond at MRRJ on these charges.
