NKY man claims 2 years of threats and harassment by convict he never met


COVINGTON, Ky. (WXIX) – A man previously convicted of impersonating a police officer is back behind bars charged with threatening someone he would never have met.

Ronald Ferrier, 79, was pardoned for the crime by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin in 2007.

Now, 15 years later, Ferrier is in the Kenton County Detention Center because a man says Ferrier has continuously harassed him for the past two years.

“There’s a part of me where I feel bad for the guy,” said the man, who preferred to remain anonymous. “He lives in this world in his head where that’s the reality and it clearly isn’t.”

Ferrier seems to believe the man is having an affair with his life.

“I’ve never met him,” the man said.

According to an arrest warrant, Ferrier made implicit and explicit threats on August 29 against the alleged victim, which caused him to fear that he would be killed or injured.

Ferrier allegedly left a voicemail on the man’s phone saying, ‘You sons of ****, you stay away from my wife. You have no idea the danger you are putting yourself in. You ******, ******, ********. I’m serious. Two and a half years is plenty. I mean it, you stay away from her.

He says Ferrier left him and his wife many messages over the years, but this voicemail was the first with such a threat, which police say was enough to put him in jail. .

The man says he has been receiving messages since September 2020, when Ferrier reportedly showed up at his mother’s house looking for him. That’s when the phone calls started. He says Ferrier continued to show up at his mother’s house after that.

“I just want it to go away,” the man said. “That’s my hope. I want my daughter to be able to ride her scoter down the driveway. I want to be able to take my dog ​​out at night.

The man and his wife applied for protective orders. That of his wife was refused. He waits for a word on the status of his order.
