I could see someone committing a federal crime to get into Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom for free. MAYBE even Universal Studios. But not Epcot. Anything but Epcot.
Last week, 74-year-old Emerito Pujol of Miami, Florida was in Orlando and really wanted to get into Epcot for free. So he decided to IMPERSONATE A FEDERAL OFFICER to get in.
Emerito flashed a FAKE BADGE and said he was an undercover federal officer who was pursuing a suspect inside. When a second employee came over, Emerito changed the story and said he was, quote, "guarding someone important."
They called over a sheriff's deputy . . . and at that point, Emerito admitted he wasn't an officer. He got his fake badge for contributing to a nonprofit group called the American Federation of Police.
He was arrested for unlawful use of a police badge, falsely impersonating an officer, and petty theft.
