A Pope impersonator was arrested for “usurping a title.” He was charged with a misdemeanor for impersonating the late Pope John Paul II. He would stand near the Colosseum and entertain tourists as they dropped Euro’s into a plate he had before him. He could be fined $200 – 1200 for the misdemeanor. His cassock costume and other accessories were confiscated.
He was arrested after an anonymous person tipped police officers about his activity.
