A security guard who used to protect numerous celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, was acquitted of charges that he impersonated a federal agent to gain employment from another celebrity.

The recently acquitted man was accused by federal prosecutors of telling an employer that he had previously worked for the Department of Homeland Security. The security firm that he had said this to used to represent such celebrities as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The attorney for the accused man asked the federal judge to dismiss the case telling the judge that prosecutors failed to show that the man took any action after telling the employer that he was a federal agent and that merely misrepresenting your identity is not a crime.

The judge agreed and the charges against the man were dropped.
