Police say a man asked to use his cell phone to make a call from jail after being arrested for shoplifting, but he didn't call his family.

Michael Harp, 29, asked to make the call after being booked into the Corbin, Kentucky jail on shoplifting charges. A short time later, police say a pizza delivery driver showed up to deliver five pizzas to the officer who arrested Harp.

The officers traced the call to Harp through his cellphone number. WKYT-TV reports that Harp said it was a misunderstanding and that other people used his phone in the jail.

Harp now faces additional charges including theft of identity, theft by deception, and impersonating a police officer.
