NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- A man posing as a Nashville Police officer was arrested on Saturday after trying to get a discount on car speakers from Best Buy.

According to the arrest affidavit for Randall Omohundro, the 53-year-old entered the 2311 Gallatin Pike Best Buy store and approached multiple employees saying he worked for "Metro." He then pulled his newer black Honda around to the the vehicle bays where stero equipment is installed and told empoyees he worked for the narcotic unit with Metro Police and sometimes used his daughter's car for undercover work.

Employees say Omohundro flashed a badge and had a Metro Police patch on one of the vehicle's visors. Omohundro then told employees he was going to use taxpayer money and a Metro Police account to have speakers installed. The employees told Omohundro they could not provide a discount for the speakers, at which time Omohundro became upset and told them he would be hearing from his "higher ups." Omohundro fled the scene but employees were able to get his license plate number, leading to his arrest.
