LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man has been charges with impersonating a police officer and terroristic threatening after he called the jail trying to get a prisoner released.
An arrest warrant says Joshua Robert Klein made the call to Louisville Metro Corrections on April 26 at 7 a.m. During the call Klein spoke with a LMDC officer and asked questions about an inmate at the jail.
Klein identified himself as a Louisville Metro Police detective and said the inmate needed to be released. The officer could not find the name of the detective on a LMPD roster and thought she recognized the voice of the man making the call.
When asked questions by the LMDC officer Klein became angry and told the officer he would wait for her to get off work and kill her.
When the inmate Klein was asking about was questioned, she said it was probably her boyfriend. An investigation revealed the call was made from Klein's phone.
Once he was identified as a suspect, the officer who took the call realized that Klein was a former LMDC inmate and had been a work aide while in jail.
Klein was arrested late May 27. He is expected to be arraigned on May 29.
