EXETER - The man identified by state police as the victim in a fatal rollover on Saturday had been charged in 2011 in Massachusetts with impersonating a U.S. Marshal and with impersonating deputy sheriff in Salem, N.H., in 2004.

An affidavit filed in federal court indicates Williams had bought a Ford Explorer from a car dealership in Derry and dashboard lights from a business in Manchester to make the truck look like a law enforcement vehicle.

He also bought a pellet gun, which looked like a semiautomatic handgun, from a store in Salem, according to the affidavit. The items were allegedly purchased using a stolen credit card.

Williams told the deputy marshals who arrested him that he was fascinated by the U.S. Marshals and had wanted to be a U.S. Marshal since he was a kid, according to the affidavit.

Williams told investigators he bought his badge and certificates online, using the false credentials to pick up women and get government discounts at area hotels.
