I'm TSA! I need your boat E-mail

According to multiple media reports, the brother of former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is facing multiple charge for impersonating an officer after police in Connecticut found him with an arsenal of weapons and witness say he “commandeered” a boat.

According to a statement from the Connecticut State Police, residents reported a man wearing military-style clothing from head to toe and carrying a gun while walking on Sea View Drive in Old Lyme.

The caller said that the man was seen in a “police type vehicle” equipped with lightbars and other police gear.

Bruce W. Browne, he spells his name differently than his former nude model/senator brother for some reason, told officers that he was the owner of the vehicle and he admitted to wearing army-style gear while carrying a 9mm weapon.

A search of Browne’s vehicle produced three 9mm handguns, two sets of handcuffs, 12 fully-loaded magazines and over 200 rounds of ammunition. Browne also had law enforcement gear, including a tactical bullet-proof vest with the word “POLICE” on the front and back and some kind of metal TSA badge.

“Further investigation revealed that Browne commandeered a boat earlier today by identifying himself as a ‘Police/Coast Guard’ official,” the police statement said, adding that he stopped at least three vessels to check their boat registrations.

Browne had IDs from when he worked for the TSA and Coast Guard, but the Connecticut State Police determined he’s no longer with those agencies.

Browne was charged with impersonating an officer, interfering with a police officer and possession of a dangerous weapon in a motor vehicle.

He was released on $50,000 bond and is scheduled to make his next court appearance on Aug. 22.
