FBI impersonator pleads guilty

By Washington Post editors

A 19-year-old D.C., man who was arrested at a Montana airport has pleaded guilty to impersonating an FBI agent and saying he had a gun in his carry-on bag to see how personnel would respond.

Malik Hannabal Shabazz was arrested March 5 at Great Falls International Airport. He was headed home for spring break from the University of Great Falls, where he was studying criminal justice.

An investigation determined that Shabazz did not have a gun.

He pleaded guilty to false impersonation of an officer of the United States at a hearing Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon.

Shabazz remains in custody. Sentencing is set for Aug. 26.
