PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- A man suspected of impersonating a reporter, calling female high school athletes and asking to take their pictures has pleaded not guilty.
Sixty-eight-year-old Gary Medrow, of Greenfield, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to two counts of unlawful use of a phone and two counts of disorderly conduct. His next court date is Jan. 17.
WISC-TV reports he's believed to have contacted athletes in Mequon, Cedarburg, Hartland, Franklin and Verona, saying he was a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Court records show he's been convicted in multiple cases for unlawful use of a phone and impersonating a police officer.
A Journal Sentinel profile of Medrow in 1998 said he had a fetish for "calling women and trying to persuade them to lift other women and carry them around."
