CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - Daniel Sawyer really wanted to be a lawman.
Sawyer, charged with impersonating a police officer among other crimes, was arrested Wednesday morning in Cherokee County while taking the entrance examination to be a sheriff's deputy.
The Douglasville man was arrested on outstanding warrants for kidnapping, false imprisonment, battery and impersonating a police officer, said Sgt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff's Office.
Douglas County investigators called the Cherokee jail Wednesday morning, tipping officials there that Sawyer may stop by Canton to apply for a job. Cherokee deputies allowed Sawyer to take the exam while they ran the Douglas warrants, Baker said.
Sawyer's exam grade?
"Incomplete," Baker said.
