An eastern Iowa man who faked being a jailer wound up being an inmate. Iowa County Sheriff’s Deputies say 30-year-old Michael Maschmann tried to tour the new Iowa County Jail on his own and was confronted by a construction worker and asked why he was at the facility.

Maschmann apparently told the worker he was the new jailer, but the worker called the real jailer who then called deputies. Maschmann was arrested and charged with impersonating a public official. Maschmann could face two years in jail if convicted.
