Man accused of impersonating cop to get Dunkin Donuts discounts

He really wanted a donut.

Florida authorities have arrested a man who they say was flashing a fake police badge and a firearm to get discounts at Dunkin Donuts.

Pasco County police say Charles Barry made two stops at a store in Trinity on Nov. 6 and 7  before he was busted, Fox 13 reports. After the first stop, an employee told their manager about Barry and they were able to get his license plate number on surveillance video when he stopped the next day.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said Barry told him he got the badge from his father, who is a police officer in Morris County in New Jersey.

The badge was confiscated and Barry has been charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and improper exhibition of a firearm, Fox 13 reports.
