Julian R. Mitchell, 20, was booked into the Davidson County Jail after the Thursday incident, the television station reported.

According to an arrest affidavit, Mitchell tried to use the victim's card, but a fraud alert determined that the card was either lost or stolen, WZTV reported. When Mitchell was asked to show identification and showed a Tennessee driver's license, it was "plainly obvious" the photo was not of him, according to the affidavit.

When Nashville police searched Mitchell, they found the victim's wallet in his fanny pack, WZTV reported. The wallet included several other cards that belonged to the victim, the television station reported.

Mitchell is being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond, WZTV reported.
