Lake Buena Vista, Fla. –
Police arrested 74-year-old Emerito Pujol of Miami after they say he impersonated a federal officer to get into Disney World’s EPCOT for free on Saturday.
According to the report, Pujol flashed a badge at the entrance to the theme park to a park employee who asked to see the badge again. He told the employee he was working an undercover case and needed to be let in.
After Disney security arrived, Pujol reportedly stated he was working a VIP mission in which he was protecting someone.
After an Orange County Deputy Sheriff arrived, Pujol apparently finally admitted he was waiting for his family and trying to get into the park for free, saving himself nearly $100 bucks.
The badge he showed said “American Federation of Police” and “Honorary Member”.
Pujol was arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail and charged with unlawful use of a police badge, falsely impersonating an officer and petty theft. He has since bonded out of jail.
