NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) — A Chapin man has been arrested for claiming to be a personal bodyguard for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

Newberry County sheriff’s deputies said Monday that 39-year-old William Scott Fowler had been charged with impersonating a police office and soliciting business as a private investigator.

Deputies say they got a complaint a man was portraying himself as a State Law Enforcement Division agent assigned to the governor’s security detail. Authorities say the man had also told people he was a private investigator.

It wasn’t known if Fowler has an attorney.

Deputies said Fowler has several previously convictions that include forgery, impersonating an officer, credit card theft and defrauding a federally insured institution.
