McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a Texas man charged with impersonating a police officer and assault has died.
The McAlester News-Capital reports (http://bit.ly/Olzkr0) that court records say the case against 23-year-old John Austin Osborne of Arlington, Texas, was dismissed Sept. 11 because Osborne died Aug. 24.
A cause of death is not listed.
Osborne was charged in March with using an assault rifle to threaten a woman in McAlester and telling her he was a police officer.
Osborne denied the allegations - but police say a rifle matching the description given by the woman was found in the house where Osborne was located.
