The "Wannabe" of all time!!
And in Colorado, no less What a dork.
Purported Interpol 'Hit Man' Arrested
Interpol Claims No Record Of Man
BOULDER, Colo. -- Interpol: Purported former agent's claims "irresponsible fantasy" A man who claimed to have worked for Interpol as a "hit man" for 20 years and who said he was an expert on human trafficking was arrested Friday on suspicion of criminal impersonation after an investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
David Race Bannon, 42, of Charlotte, N.C., didn't resist his arrest at a Boulder restaurant, Jefferson County district attorney spokesman Carl Blesch said in a statement. Besides criminal impersonation, Bannon also faces charges of computer crime, and criminal attempt to commit theft.
Charges were recommended after Bannon said his two-day law enforcement training course would cost Colorado $3,000 plus air fare and a per diem, according to the arrest affidavit.
"Bannon is able to solicit these fees based upon the claims... that he has great expertise in matters involving the illegal trafficking in children," according to the affidavit, which said Bannon faked his credentials, which included a doctorate degree.
Bond was set for $5,000. It was unclear whether he had hired an attorney. There was no home number listed for Bannon in Charlotte, N.C.
Bannon, a recognized expert on human trafficking, has made several appearances on network television and has charged "substantial fees" to provide training and lectures, the affidavit said.
Bannon wrote the book, "Race Against Evil: The Secret Missions of the Interpol Agent Who Tracked the World's Most Sinister Criminals," based on his alleged experiences with Interpol, the international crime fighting organization.
According to a statement sent to the CBI, the Interpol General Secretariat in Lyon, France said it had no record of Bannon or individuals mentioned in the book.
"The claims in Mr. Bannon's book can only be seen as deceptive and irresponsible fantasy, " according to the affidavit.
The former David Wayne Dilley changed his name to Bannon in Spokane, Wash., in 1990, choosing the name because of the character Race Bannon in the classic Hanna-Barbera adventure cartoon "Jonny Quest," according to the affidavit.
