A Naples man was arrested for impersonating an FBI agent. When told to leave a homeowner’s property, the suspect dropped catfish on her lawn, then fled the scene on a bicycle.

The suspect, Kristian Dudley, 42, faces a charge of Open Container in Public/Semi-Public Parking Area and a felony charge of Impersonate Law Enforcement Officer.

The victim said Dudley drove a bike with red and blue flashing lights into her front yard at the 2000 block of Palm Street in Naples. Dudley introduced himself as an FBI agent, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. Then, he ordered the woman to show proof of ID to make sure she was there legally.

The victim said she was a U.S. citizen and told him to leave her property. After Dudley refused a second time, her husband told Dudley to go and he called CCSO, per the arrest report. Before leaving the property, Dudley dropped multiple live catfish in the driveway for an “unknown reason.”

As Dudley was biking, a deputy stopped him because he fit the description of the suspect. The deputy said Dudley appeared heavily intoxicated, was wearing a dark shirt, had an FBI hat and a bicycle with red and blue flashing lights.

Dudley has been taken to jail.
