An Army veteran impersonator, who tried to enter a Pennsylvania middle school in an Air Force uniform, has agreed to a plea deal with the Fayette County District Attorney.
On November 17, around 10 a.m., Jonathan Campbell showed up unannounced at a Uniontown, PA middle school and claimed he was there to speak to students about Veterans Day. Dressed in an Air Force uniform, he told school officials that he was an Army veteran. Noticing clear inconsistencies in his appearance and his story, the school phoned local police. Officers took Campbell into custody and he was charged with Impersonating a Public Servant and Disorderly Conduct.
Authorities discovered that Campbell, a 23-year-old Uniontown resident, has a history of mental health issues. Part of his plea deal, according to a local A.D.A. involved with the case, will be probation and mental health treatment. Instead of posting bond, Campbell is currently in jail. The D.A.’s office expects the plea deal to be formalized in an upcoming hearing.
