AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Federal authorities allege a West Virginia man who applied for a job with an Ohio company pretended to be a major general with the U.S. Army and listed the Army chief of staff as a reference on his resume.

A criminal complaint filed in federal court accuses Randall Keyser of Barboursville, W.Va., of wire fraud. Court records show he was arrested Thursday and has a detention hearing Tuesday.

An FBI agent alleges in an affidavit that Keyser sought a six-figure job with an Ohio construction company in March. It says he told company officials he had supervised construction projects and answered directly to the U.S. secretary of defense but was planning to retire from the military.

Keyser's attorney, George Pappas, declined to comment Saturday.
