WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities say a man accused of posing as a U.S. Secret Service agent and entering the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services over the weekend had pretended to be a Massachusetts police officer to enter a U2 concert last year.

The Norfolk, Mass., District Attorney’s Office says 46-year-old Frederick Nickerson pleaded guilty in November to disorderly conduct, trespassing and impersonating a public official, stemming from the concert incident.

Authorities say Nickerson flashed what looked like a gold Massachusetts State Police badge and entered Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Sept. 21. They say he didn’t have a ticket to the concert.

When he refused to identify himself, stadium security called police, who then arrested him.
