Police officer impersonator arrested on Capitol Grounds

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — A 54-year-old man was arrested Tuesday for impersonating a federal police officer on Capitol Grounds, Capitol police said.

Police arrested Darryl Sharp, 54, who has been arrested three times this year on Capitol Grounds. Sharp was previously arrested for unlawful entry at the Hart Senate Office Building and then was later arrested for simple assault on an officer.

Sharp was found yelling at the staff, demanding paperwork and claiming to be a federal police officer inside the Rayburn House Office Building, police said. All attempts to confirm Sharp’s claim of employment turned out negative.

Currently there is no stay-away order against Sharp, Capitol police said. Police say, Sharp was on the grounds earlier Tuesday morning as well.
