A man was slapped with an additional charge after trying to post bail with fake money, police in North Carolina said.

The Greensboro Police Department charged 20-year-old Jarious Treymayne Mock, with forgery after producing fake currency to post $200 bail.

According to the police investigation, Mock was found drunk and disruptive on South Elm Street on Thursday.

As the officer was writing a ticket for Mock, it was discovered that he had an active arrest warrant for failing to appear in court.

He was booked into the Guilford County jail, where a judge set bail at $200. While he was producing cash, officers noticed that a $100 bill was fake.

While being searched, officers found more fake cash. Mock was then charged with forgery. His bail was increased to $2,000.
