A man is behind bars in Tampa after allegedly asking two uniformed officers to test a crack pipe.

Police say the man doubted whether he was being sold actual crack cocaine, so he approached the officers and asked them to test his pipe so he could be sure.

Turned out it was the real thing. Authorities say the man was arrested after the residue in his pipe tested positive for crack cocaine.

He's listed in jail records as a security worker at MacDill Air Force Base.
