Man Posing As FBI Agent Disrupts Plane Boarding, Exposes Self

LEE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A man was arrested after reportedly disrupting the boarding of a plane, posing as an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to do so.

According to an arrest report obtained by CBS affiliate WINK News, the suspect, 28-year-old Arnaldo Jose Santiago Burgos, was also accused of exposing his genitals to nurses after being transported to Gulfcoast Hospital from Southwest Florida International Airport Monday evening.

The trouble began after Burgos forced his way onto a plane, saying that he needed to get to Boston because of medical complications. He also claimed he was an FBI informant during the disruption, WINK News learned.

He was apprehended by authorities at the airport around 7:30 p.m., at which point he reportedly faked a seizure.

When he was taken to the nearby hospital for treatment, he exposed himself to nurses multiple times, allegedly asking them at one point if they liked what they saw.

The station learned that the pacemaker on which Burgos blamed his seizure was working fine, and that he was found to be in possession of prescription bottles with a variety of pills inside each.

Poison Control was able to identify the collection of pills as a mixture of Clonazepam and Zoloft after they were called in by Port Authority officials to assist. There were also three white pills that they were reportedly unable to identify.

In explanation, Burgos simply said he “like[s] to mix pills for the fun of it,” according to police documents.

WINK News is reporting that Burgos now faces multiple charges, including battery of a law enforcement officer, trespassing, resisting with violence, unlawful exposure of sex organs and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
