reports that Emerito Pujol showed up at the front entrance of the theme park on Saturday and showed an employee a badge. Pujol told the employee at the gate that he was an undercover officer who was looking for someone.
The Florida News Journal
reports that after security was called to further investigate Pujol's story, he allegedly changed his story and said that he was there to provide protection for someone important.
Police were then called to the scene, according to the Huffington Post
. Pujol decided to admit to officers that he was only pretending to be a federal agent in order to avoid paying the $94.79 cost of entrance.
Upon further investigation of the badge he used in his scheme, it was discovered that it was for an "honorary member" of the American Federation of Police, a nonprofit organization.
Pujol was arrested and is now facing felony charges for impersonating an officer of the law.
