Accused impersonator tries to buy troopers association's naming rights
The trooper who seized the man's camera found his attire (fire helmet) and vehicle (converted ambulance with "1st Responder News" on the side) to be misleading

CONCORD, NC — The photographer who had his camera seized at an accident scene by state troopers who said he was impersonating emergency personnel is now trying to take over the state troopers association's trade name after the group let its nonprofit status lapse.
Brian Blackden filed with the secretary of state's office last week for the New Hampshire Troopers Association trade name, which became available Feb. 15 once the organization, a union representing the state's troopers, was administratively dissolved for failing to fill out renewal paperwork, said Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan.
