I'd like to use my one phone call now. (via WKYT)

A Kentucky man arrested for shoplifting and public intoxication got slapped with extra charges for pulling a classic prank while he was still in jail.

Apparently, cops are letting perps use their cell phones while they are locked up, so Michael Harp, shoplifter and 10-year-old boy trapped in a 29-year-old man's body, took the opportunity to call in a five pizza order from Domino's under the name of the officer who arrested him to the precinct where he was being held . 

When the pizzas arrived, the cops put their best men on the case and immediately traced the call to Harp's cell phone. Uh duh. Super duh.

Harp claims he is innocent of all pizza-related charges, invoking the Shaggy defense. As he explains it to WKYT:

 "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 says. "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."

Now the pizza prankster is facing felony charges including theft of identity, theft by deception, and impersonating a police officer. 

Understandably, police will be keeping an extra eye on Harp while he is being held to make sure he doesn't saran-wrap the toilet seat.
