These dudes didn’t want to wear masks at a Florida resort so they posed as U.S. marshals and threatened to arrest anyone who tried to get them to mask up.

So these guys got a little extreme...or maybe alotta extreme.

Normal, everyday citizens Walter Wayne Brown Jr. and Gary Brummett (I don't know where they're from or I'd say it here) figured they'd have a little getaway last week, so they visited the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort near Boca Raton, Florida.

The resort required them to wear masks, which they didn't want to do, so they did what any normal person would do in the face of a countywide mask mandate:


You're probably just jealous that these guys thought of the idea and you didn't.

In fact, these average, mostly normal men nearly got away with their little stunt.

They flashed "authentic appearing" badges, and possessed clean, laminated "mask exempt" cards (which are actually quite popular). These bros even threatened to have hotel employees arrested if they forced them to wear masks.

Here's what those "mask exempt" cards probably looked like (don't get any ideas):

Unfortunately, hotel staff grew very suspicious of these two gents (not sure why). One staff member has a cousin who is a U.S. marshal, and knew right away that they would never act like these two bozos. So they called the police.

When police were called, they found Brown Jr. and Brummett dining in a resort restaurant on Feb. 11.

Both men wore "authentic appearing" circular badges that read "Cherokee Nation Marshal," according to the complaint. They gave police ID cards identifying them as Aniyvwiya Tribal Nation members.

But personnel checks revealed that neither Brown Jr. nor Brummett had ever been employees of the U.S. Marshals Service or the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service, according to the complaint.
