Mervin Cabe, a 25-year-old Miami man, tried to have some fun at the expense of former NFL receiver Chad Johnson on Friday, according to Jason Auslander of The Aspen Times, citing court documents.
Cabe told employees of a Louis Vutton store in Aspen that he was Johnson, and used an Apple Pay account to purchase over $18,000 worth of goods after his credit card was denied.
According to the affidavit, Cabe also told police officers that he was Johnson, though he could not produce a correct date of birth and refused to show them his declined credit card or Apple Pay account. Officers said he “kept making excuses and repeating the same nonsensical story,” before eventually admitting his guilt.
Cabe was charged with felony counts of identity theft and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device.
