man arrested for posing as marshal to "deport" woman

Unbelievable. Last month in Riverside County, police arrested a man who posed as a U.S. marshall to kidnap a distant cousin's wife and falsely deport her to the Philippines: Police: Calif man posed as marshal to deport woman.

37-year-old Greg Raymond Denny Jr. was arrested on suspicion of impersonating an officer and kidnapping Cherriebelle Hibbard:
Police said Denny, 37, barged into Hibbard's Hemet home on Jan. 15 wearing a fake badge and a shirt that said "U.S. Marshal." Denny handcuffed the woman at gunpoint and forced her husband to buy her a plane ticket. He then used a fake badge to get through San Diego airport security and put her on a plane to her home country, according to a police report.

Craig Hibbard said he called the U.S. Marshals Service three days later and officials there told him Denny wasn't an agent.

Police said they arrested Denny after he came to the station for questioning wearing a fake badge and a replica pistol. Denny claimed he was a federal marshal but later admitted he impersonated a marshal and confirmed the family's account, Lt. Mark Richards said. No motive was released.
According to the article, Cherriebelle is married to Denny's distant cousin, Craig Hibbard. They were apparently having marital problems. I don't know what that means... or why this guy took it upon himself to personally "deport" this woman, but he sounds like an ass. More here: Man charged with posing as a federal marshal.
