The U.S. Secret Service arrestedÂ 46-year-old Nelson Mercado for allegedly impersonating a federal agent inÂ the hopes of securing a bodyguard positionÂ for Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt.
Mercado made false claims that he was a special agent for the Department ofÂ Homeland Security (wow, this guyÂ shot for the stars)Â and was seeking employment by Brangelina’sÂ securityÂ team, Sunset Protective Services.Â
Besides being accused of using bologna pony credentials, Mercado also stands to face charges on a “fraudulently registered” Ford Crown Victoria with tinted windows & a police light package.Â Well, you gotta do it up right when you’re trying to slip in the door, right?
If convicted, Mercado faces up to three years in prison.
Yowzers, what people will do….
