Man accused of impersonating fire, police official
Guy Rubei, 58, was charged with several misdemeanor and summary offenses in connection with two separate incidents
HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. —A Westmoreland County man is facing charges he impersonated a public servant on two separate occasions while riding in his pickup truck marked "emergency" and "fire police."
Guy Rubei, 58, of Hempfield Township, is charged with several misdemeanor and summary offenses in connection with the incidents on Oct. 31, 2014, and Jan. 6.
State police say in the first incident, Rubei drove his marked vehicle with its emergency light bar activated through the Wendover and West Point sections of Hempfield Township, passing out candy and promoting his organization, the Westmoreland County Volunteer Fire Police Department. Promoting a business isn't illegal, state police said, but driving a vehicle marked as an emergency vehicle when you're not an emergency responder is illegal.None
