Pro tip: When you're being held in a police station and the cops let you make a phone call, ordering a pizza delivery may not be the best idea.

A Kentucky man who was arrested for shoplifting and public intoxication pulled a prank that went horribly wrong, reports local news outlet WKYT.

Michael Harp, 29, asked officers for permission to make a cell phone call, which he allegedly used to order five pizzas from Domino's. The catch? The pizzas arrived for Officer Wilson — the cop who had arrested Harp. Though the cops tracked the call to Harp's cell phone, he denied the entire incident.

"I'm wrongfully accused on this here," Harp told WKYT. "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."

Harp is now facing additional charges for theft of identity, theft by deception, and impersonating a police officer.
