Associated Press Release

SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a man who worked at Pizza Hut is accused of impersonating a Pasco County Sheriff's Deputy to impress his girlfriend.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office says 37-year-old Christopher Sharp was trying to impress his girlfriend. But the scheme landed him in jail after his Feb. 22 arrest.

The Tampa Tribune reports that between August and January he told his live-in girlfriend that he was a Pasco deputy. He came home wearing a Pasco County Sheriff's uniform and often told his girlfriend, family and friends stories about things that happened during his shift. He even entertained partygoers on New Year's Eve with stories about DUI enforcement he'd been involved with earlier that evening.

He was booked on fraud charges. Jail records don't list an attorney for him.
