A Bixby, Okla., man is in jail after he allegedly impersonated a police officer and demanded a discount on spray tan.

Dustin Lee Bell, 25, is accused of stealing a Sand Springs officer's badge, which he then allegedly donned hoping for a discount at a local tanning salon.

KOTV reports:

The tanning salon manager said in a statement to police that the dispute began when Bell, who was wearing the badge visible on the outside of his sweater, demanded he only be charged $10 for a $34 spray tan.

The manager stepped away to call authorities and noticed there was a bottle of spray tan missing when he returned.

After he was arrested, Bell told police that that he found the badge at a car wash. Officers contacted the Sand Springs police, who confirmed that the badge had been stolen.

Bell faces charges of stolen property, larceny from a retailer and false impersonation of a police officer.
