Police: Kentucky man posed as officer, assaulted woman

COLUMBIA, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say a man impersonated a law enforcement officer and attempted to forcibly remove a woman from her car after signaling for her to pull over. State police arrested 47-year-old George Barton on Sunday. It was more than a month after the incident near Columbia. The woman told investigators she was driving Sept. 3 when she saw blue lights flashing behind her and pulled over. That’s when a man approached her car and threw what is suspected to be ammonia in her face. She fought him and he fled. He was arrested at his home on Sunday.
