The news is out: [A Wake County prosecutor has resigned after he was accused of a crime on New Year’s Day, District Attorney Lorrin Freeman said Friday.
Adam Everett, who had been an assistant district attorney in Wake County for roughly five years, has received a criminal summons accusing him of impersonating a law enforcement officer, a misdemeanor. He was initially suspended, then placed on administrative leave, The News & Observer reported.
Everett went to a home with a holstered gun, said he was a sheriff’s narcotics officer and asked to search the apartment while threatening to get a search warrant, the criminal summons states.
The incident occurred on New Year’s Day between 1 and 1:30 a.m. at a downtown Raleigh apartment building, The N&O reported.]
