Best 15 Minutes of Fame Houston 2008 - Roland Carnaby

This one is just waiting to be turned into a movie: In May, a Houston police officer pulled over Roland Carnaby for speeding. Carnaby presented some sort of ID with "Central ­Intelligence Agency" stamped on it, plus a concealed handgun permit. The officer also reported that Carnaby was acting nervously. After some talk about who at the CIA could vouch for Carnaby, the man sped away, ­resulting in yet another Houston chase. When he finally stopped, officers ordered him out, but he refused. ­Unfortunately, this one ended in tragedy — police shot Carnaby to death. Over the next few days, details of Carnaby's ­bizarre claims emerged, presenting a portrait of a man who apparently led a very weird — yet often convincing — fantasy life.
