— A Fayetteville man faces charges for impersonating a doctor.

Investigators said Tuesday that Daniel Ray Stewart, 24, of Branson Street, allegedly posed as a doctor in the emergency room at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center last month.

A police spokesman said Stewart was shadowing an emergency medical technician at the time. It wasn't clear whether Stewart actually treated any patients.

Stewart faces three misdemeanor counts of impersonating a doctor.
