Former Henderson mayor, Tom Davis, pleaded not guilty during his appearance Tuesday morning in Circuit Court.
Davis, who is also a Henderson City Commissioner, was formally charged last Friday with impersonating a police officer.
He's accused of confronting Robert Frederick and Neil Hall at a fast food restaurant on Highway 41 last September.
The two men say Davis made them believe he was a police officer and he asked for their ID's
During Tuesday's hearing, Davis' attorney asked for a special judge to be appointed to the case.
In addition, Commonwealth Attorney, Bill Markwell, asked to be recused because of his personal relationship with Davis.
A pre-trial hearing is set for Monday.
