Italian police arrest fake pilot after flight

Man used a phony Facebook account to pull off a "Catch Me If You Can" ruse and fly from Munich to Turin.

    It played out like the sequel to the Hollywood movie "Catch Me If You Can."

    Actor Leonardo DiCaprio starred as real life con-artist Frank Abagnale, posing as a Pan-American pilot -- surrounded by gorgeous flight attendants.
     
    It may not be quite so glamorous a job these days but it held enough allure for one unemployed Italian man to reinvent the scam, managing to fly from Munich to Turin.
