Vladimir Putin has been arrested in Florida and is facing charges of trespassing, according to reports from the United States.

CBS12 reports that Putin - a West Palm Beach local and absolutely not the president of Russia - was detained by police after reports of a man screaming at workers in a Publix supermarket.

Putin refused to leave the store when confronted by supermarket managers, according to police.

The 28-year-old is now facing charges of trespassing and resisting arrest following the alleged incident last week.

Putin appeared in court this week and is currently being held at a West Palm Beach detention centre.
