SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A woman in South Bend was arrested after she tried to explain to police she worked for the CIA.

WSBT says Lisa O’Donnell was at a gas station, trying to access their security cameras. When officers arrived, she told them there was a problem in the area with counterfeit money, and had to look through security footage.

They asked her who she worked for, and she responded “CIA.”

There was just one problem.

O’Donnell was wearing a hat that said “FBI.”

She told the police they could run her ID, and it would confirm her credentials. So they did, but her license did not, in fact, confirm her status as a CIA agent. Or an FBI agent. 

On top of that, police noticed her white Dodge Challenger outside did not have a license plate. It turned out, it had been stolen from a dealership. 

O’Donnell was arrested and taken to the St. Joseph County Jail.
