A Florida man was busted after posing as an FBI agent and held a prostitute captive in a motel room in Sugarloaf Township over the weekend.

Martin Smith, 42, of St. Petersburg, faces numerous charges, including unlawful restraint, impersonating a public servant and patronizing prostitutes.

Smith held the woman at the hotel and had a fake badge, metal pellet gun and drugs.

The woman fled and called 911 after convincing Smith to let her get drugs from the car.

A man who works for a company that scoops up pet poop has been charged with using a fake Secret Service ID and badge to get the “government rate” for a hotel room.

Christopher Diiorio, 53, was arrested after flashing the ID and badge during a traffic stop in suburban Pittsburgh, the Associated Press reports. 

The professional pooper scooper pleaded not guilty Thursday in federal court to using a false badge, a fraudulent official seal and conspiracy.

Federal authorities say Diiorio purchased the fake ID and badge online.

The foreign company that sent the ID and badge was not named in the indictment.

Diiorio faces up to 15 years in prison.
