PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- A man accused of impersonating a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter has been charged after authorities said he called high school female athletes at home and asked to take their pictures.

Sixty-eight-year-old Gary Medrow of Greenfield was charged Friday in Ozaukee County with two misdemeanor counts each of disorderly conduct and unlawful use of a phone.

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."

A criminal complaint says Medrow tried to arrange a meeting with two teenage girls at Cedarburg High School so he could photograph them posing on each other's shoulders.

Online court records on Saturday didn't list a defense attorney for Medrow.
