SANTA ANA  (AP) – A Mission Viejo man has been sentenced for impersonating a police officer who demanded a rubdown and $200 at a massage parlor.

Orange County prosecutors say 48-year-old Edward Justin LaPorte was sentenced Wednesday to six months in prison and probation.

Prosecutors say LaPorte is a former police officer from Illinois who was wearing a badge when he entered the Golden Spa massage parlor in Lake Forest on Jan. 31. He told the manager he was investigating a complaint.

Prosecutors say he then complained of back pain, and a masseuse gave him a back rub before LaPorte asked for a frontal massage, which was refused.

The manager called city officials, who sent a real inspector who confronted LaPorte.

LaPorte reportedly fled, but not before his license plate number was recorded.
