SPENCER COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE 3/LEX 18) – A man faces several charges, including impersonating an officer, following his arrest in Spencer County.

Robert Powell, of Lexington, was driving 111 mph near Elk Creek on Wednesday, according to a post on the Spencer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. 

The arresting deputy pulled him over at a McDonald's parking lot and found a gun and a radio in Powell's vehicle.

In addition to the impersonating charge, Powell is accused of speeding, reckless driving, wanton endangerment, fleeing or evading police and carrying a concealed weapon.

Following an interview with the FBI, Powell was taken to the Shelby County Detention Center.

Spencer County deputies urge anyone who has been stopped by Powell to contact them.

In a jailhouse interview with LEX 18, Robert Anthony Powell disagreed with some of the charges against him. 

"I was not impersonating an FBI agent," he said.

He did admit to driving fast.

"I was going that fast but the reason for me going that fast because when these other people come around me and drive their fast cars and peel their tires out in the area that I live, it makes me go back to them," said Powell.
