A man suspected of shoplifting had a few more charges brought against him after officers say he ordered five pizzas to be delivered to the police station as a prank.
Michael Harp, 29, was arrested Tuesday for shoplifting and public intoxication Tuesday by police in Corbin, Ky.
“I mean it’s a joke truthfully. Pizzas, come on,” Harp said. “This is a high schooler’s joke.”
Officers told WKYT News that Harp ordered the pizzas from Domino’s to be delivered to Officer Wilson – the same officer who made Tuesday’s arrest.
“I’m wrongfully accused on this here. They’ve charged me with two felonies over this pizza deal because I had my phone inside the holding cell,” Harp told WKYT.
Corbin Police say they traced the call back to Harp’s phone. He’s now charged with theft by deception, theft of identity and impersonating a police officer in addition to the shoplifting and public intoxication charges.
Harp maintains his innocence, and argued that 10 people used the phone.
