A man was arrested after he donned an army uniform and posed as a soldier so that he would get bumped up to first class on a flight from the Dominican Republic to New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport, the New York Post reported Monday.

Rock Diaz, 22, of Long Island, has a history of pretending to be a military man to get VIP treatment, according to police — he once even smooth-talked his way into a jetliner’s cockpit, where he was photographed sitting at the controls.

He was busted when a sharp-eyed customs official at JFK asked him his rank — and he gave an answer that did not match the insignia on the uniform he was wearing.
