A Disney employee was arrested on Saturday for allegedly impersonating an FBI agent. 26-year-old Brett Michael Smith is accused of using a prop badge from a Halloween costume to pull over a woman on I-Drive in Orlando, Florida.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by Oxygen, an officer was on patrol inside his car at a traffic light when he noticed a man walk up to the vehicle in front of him and being pointing his arms and yelling at the female driver. When the officer approached and spoke to the female, she stated that Smith came to her window and flashed a badge and ordered her to pull over. When the woman refused to pull over, Smith walked up to the car, showed his badge again, and told her he worked for the "FBI" and he's "over the police" pointing his finger and yelling at her to watch the "f*ck out."
When the officer confronted Smith, he presented a black leather wallet which contained a U.S. Dept of Homeland Security badge and identification, and the officer himself initially thought it was legit. But when Smith was asked where he worked, he said he worked for Disney and got the badge and identification for Halloween.
Smith was taken into custody on one count of falsely impersonating an officer.
