Pasco County, FL-- A Florida man is facing charges that he impersonated a law enforcement officer during an attempt to get discounted doughnuts.

Pasco County sheriff's deputies say 48-year-old "Chuck" Barry tried to use the ploy twice recently at a Tampa-area Dunkin' Donuts.

They say the first time he showed the clerk a badge and a holstered gun, telling him, "See, I am a cop!"

When he returned the next day, the manager wrote down his license plate number.

Deputies arrested Barry earlier this week after they found a badge and a .38-caliber revolver in his pocket. He was later released.
