    A suspicious man was arrested Friday night after police discovered that he was posing as a federal agent and harassing patrons of the Goodman Theater in the Loop, according to the Sun-Times. 

    Laurence Bradley, 46, of the 5100 block of South Kimbark Avenue, was charged with impersonating a peace officer, according to police.

    Bradley was arrested at 7:57 p.m. on the 170 block of North Dearborn Street after he was seen approaching patrons entering the Goodman Theatre, according to a police report.

    A Chicago Police officer asked Bradley what he was doing and then Bradley allegedly showed a badge from underneath his jacket and allegedly said to an officer, “You better watch your job,’’ according to the report.

    The officer asked him to stop and he refused. Then he took off running.  When the police caught up to him, Bradley allegedly said, “Get out of my way; I’m a federal agent,’’ the report said.
     
    Officers repeatedly asked for his credentials but he refused. He was placed into custody and found to be wearing a security badge around his neck.
     
    Bradley is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 30 in North Felony Court.
