Park security at Disney Springs flagged Nathaniel Smith as possibly having a gun and contacted authorities, Fox 35 Orlando reports. When a deputy approached the man, Smith allegedly claimed that he had recently been hired as a special agent by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Atlanta, Georgia, division.

Smith reportedly showed authorities a badge when they asked to see one. Fox 35 reports that deputies later located similar-looking badges being sold on Amazon.

When authorities asked Smith to provide a phone number for his supervisor at the DEA, Smith was allegedly unable to provide one. It was eventually discovered that Smith was carrying a concealed BB gun in his waistband. The gun was reportedly a replica of a Glock 19 and was loaded at the time.

Smith was taken into custody and the gun was seized. He has reportedly been charged with impersonating an officer, unlawful display of a badge, and carrying a concealed weapon.
