33 year old Matthew Lehman of Slidell was arrested by the Louisiana Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit for impersonating a decorated military veteran online. Investigators determined Lehman was using photos and biographical information of a military veteran he obtained on social media. Lehman allegedly used his supposed military status and background to intimidate individuals online.

The veteran whose identity Lehman stole told investigators he had never met Lehman and had not provided him with any personal information.
