NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) -- A Chapin man has been arrested for claiming to be a personal bodyguard for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

Newberry County sheriff's deputies said Monday that 39-year-old William Scott Fowler had been charged with impersonating a police office and soliciting business as a private investigator.

It wasn't known if Fowler has an attorney.
