A man was jailed after he pretended to be a police officer when an ugly prostitute showed up at his hotel room in China.

Police in Yantai, Shandong, said that the man solicited the prostitute and then harassed her because she was “ugly.”

The 24-year-old man who was identified as Gao, was sentenced to 15 days in jail for impersonating a city official.

According to the report, Gao met the woman in a chat room on Thursday morning. The two arranged to meet that evening at a local hotel.

Gao told police that the woman, who identified herself as a 22-year-old sales assistant, provided him with a photo. He agreed to pay 300 yuan (about $50) for sex.

However, when Gao met the woman, she was dressed in pajamas and looked nothing like the picture. Gao became angry and flashed a fake police identification card, which he had bought online.

He then ordered the woman to come with him, and an argument broke out between them. Hotel guests heard the argument and called police.

According to the report, Gao posed as a police officer because he was not satisfied with the woman’s appearance and he wanted to vent his anger.

He was arrested and later found guilty of impersonating an officer.
