ALBANY, Ore. – A man who works at a KFC restaurant in Albany claimed he was a Benton County sheriff’s deputy and threatened to arrest his manager in an attempt to get the weekend off.

According to police, Chucheng Xiong, 30, claimed he had a second job as a Benton County deputy. On Wednesday, he told his manager he had to volunteer with the Albany Police Department over the weekend and asked for time off.

A police report says the manager didn’t believe Xiong was a deputy and asked him to provide a photo of his work schedule and the name of his supervisor.

Xiong told his manager he’d have to retrieve his computer from his car to provide proof, the report says.

When Xiong returned, he brought handcuffs and said he was going to arrest her for violating a government code. He claimed his supervisor authorized him to do this and told him to quit the job at KFC, the report says.

When he pulled out the handcuffs, Xiong was asked to leave. The manager called police and officers later arrested him for impersonating a peace officer.
