There's so much back-and-forth in this controversial case.
In fact, some think the cops might be flat-out lying

A man suspected of shoplifting in Kentucky may have gotten himself into even more trouble over a prank!
Although the prank sounds innocent enough, if Michael Harp's found guilty of the charges of theft of identity, theft by deception, and impersonating a police officer he's been dealt, he'll be faced with a lot more jail time.
Michael allegedly called a Domino's for five pizzas and had them delivered them to a police station under the name of Officer Wilson, which is the same cop who arrested him.
What an extra cheesy prank!
Officers are saying that when he was being booked for shoplifting and public intoxication, Michael asked to use his cell phone!
Police say that they linked the call made to the pizza place to Michael's phone, although Michael thinks he's in the clear:
"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. There was about 10 people who probably used the phone, so it's hard to say. Like I said, I never heard anyone say a word about Domino's pizzas. Any of it."
Two felonies? That seems like a lot for just five pizzas. The law's the law, we guess.
Well, we hope his judge has a sense of humor about this case.
