Anderson man allegedly claimed he worked for Pence security


An Anderson man faces charges alleging that he claimed to be an undercover agent working for Vice President Mike Pences security detail while threatening a hospital executive.

Johnny Wayne Agee, 53, of Greenfield was arrested last week on felony charges of impersonation of a public servant and intimidation. He remained jailed Tuesday on a $5,000 bond.

The Herald Bulletin reports Agee allegedly started making threats against a St. Vincent Anderson Hospital executive after being denied a medical procedure earlier this year.

Agee allegedly texted threats to the executive’s cellphone, and later tweeted photos on Twitter of himself posing with handgun where he claimed that he was a member of the vice presidents security detail.

The hospital executive obtained a restraining order against Agee in early November.
