John Henry Johnson really wanted to go to the Magna Carter World Tour.

Jay-Z's show passed through Dallas' American Airlines Center on Saturday, so the 45-year-old pretended to be a music executive to gain access. Using the name "Gian Carlo Donatelli," he convinced a security guard that he was an exec for the "Italian division" of Universal Music Group. Whoever fell for that load of bullshit shouldn't have a job today.

The security manager approached him, but he stuck to hisstory, insisting that he was a 20-year employee of of UMG. However, the security manager took a second glance at his media credential and determined that—*gasp*it was fake. Johnson was ultimately arrested and charged with providing false identification and criminal trespass. 

Which sounds better: A night at home or a night in jail?
