A Nashville man is behind bars charged with identity theft after trying to use someone else's debit card at a bar.

Julian R. Mitchell, 20, is now jailed in Davidson County after the incident on Thursday.

An arrest affidavit says Mitchell tried to use the victim's Regions Bank card at a bar, but the business' system gave notification that the card was lost or stolen. Mitchell was asked for his ID and handed over a Tennessee driver's license that was "plainly obvious" it was not Mitchell's due to the discrepancy in height, the affidavit said.

Metro Police said Mitchell denied using the driver's license, but a search of the suspect yielded the victim's wallet being kept in Mitchell's fanny pack. Police said they recovered several cards belonging to the victim.

Mitchell is being held on a $25,000 bond.
