Fake cop meets real cops, jail the next stop

Brian Downs' luck ran out about 2 a.m. Sunday last week when he brazenly tried to enter Fantasy strip club, 2258 Colex Drive, with a gun openly on his hip and wearing a cap with the semi-generic letters "MCSO" embroidered on it.

Security at the club didn't let Downs in — despite his insistence that he was there for "overwatch" — and since Downs previously identified himself as both a Mesa County and Montrose County sheriff's deputy, the guard phoned police about his strange interactions with Downs.
