Newmarket man charged with impersonating police officer in Stratham, Epping and Hampton.
Michael Heath, 42, struck a plea deal in Rockingham County Superior Court on three felony charges of false personation.
He is facing three felony charges, each punishable by up to 3 ½ to 7 years in state prison. Public defenders for Heath have brokered a plea deal, but terms of the agreement have not yet been made public.
But prosecutors ultimately backed away from a deal that would have required him to undergo a sex offender evaluation and serve 90 days in county jail, according to court records.
Court documents indicate that Heath's charges only represent a sampling of his behavior with a badge. Heath told police during a Sept. 13 interview that he stopped motorists in Newfields, Hampton Falls, Newington, Portsmouth, and along roadsides in Maine and Massachusetts, according to a police affidavit.
Stratham police searched Heath's vehicle on Sept. 11, Stratham police found "several sexual items" including condoms and packets of lubrication, according to Gilroy.
Heath told investigators that he started interacting with motorists by honking his horn at driver's that he thought were speeding "or during road rage encounters," according to a police report.
A judge will have to approve of the plea agreement. He remains free on bail.
