Florida Man Arrested After Allegedly Impersonating a DEA Officer To Get Into Strip Clubs

Florida Law enforcement officials have arrested a 41-year old convicted felon who they allege posed as a Drug Enforcement Administration agent for years as a way to solicit money and gain special entry to Orlando-area strip clubs and nightclubs.

Benjamin William Mejias is currently being held at the Orange County Jail on federal charges of possessing a firearm and impersonating a federal agent.  According to the document filed in U.S. District Court, Mejias posed as a DEA agent several times, even going so far as to wear a shirt with the agency’s initials and possessing several law enforcement badges.
