Tollway official resigned for allegedly impersonating state police officer

| 8/1/2006

A former official with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority may have resigned from his position after he impersonated a state police officer, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

According to a memo obtained by the Sun-Times, Anthony Martin Sr., who worked in the organization’s inspector general’s office, resigned about two months ago for allegedly claiming to be a state police commander during a phone call from his work office, in connection with an unspecified domestic dispute.

Charges against Martin, if any, have not been announced; however, impersonating a law officer in Illinois is a Class 4 felony.
