Fake Cop Runs From Real Police After Leaving Child in Vehicle, Police Say

Kevin Kellermann faces multiple charges related to a bizarre set of events in January.

An Arnold man faces multiple charges stemming from an incident where police say he impersonated a law enforcement officer.  

Kevin Kellermann, 48, of the 2200 block of Boeing Road, faces charges of false impersonation, resisting arrest, endangering the welfare of a child, and careless and imprudent driving. The charges were filed on April 16. 

The incident dates back to Jan. 27. Jefferson County Sheriff's Department police say Kellermann visited a House Springs home and identified himself as a "detective investigator," according to a court document. Then he requested permission to enter the home to search for someone. After being told no by one of the residents, Kellermann quickly left, police stated. 

He later returned and "aggressively yelled" at everyone present, according to the document. That's when police arrived.

Kellermann then fled in his vehicle with his 15-year-old child, police stated in the document. He traveled at 65 miles per house in a 30 zone in icy conditions, police stated. 

Finally, Kellermann pulled the vehicle over, fled on foot and left the child behind, police stated.

Police eventually caught up to him and placed him under arrest, according to the document.
