The son of a deceased Maine police officer forced a prostitute into giving him sex, using his father’s badge, police say.

Cops say Gary Mariner, 57, told the 25 year-old woman “It’s not your lucky day,” as he showed her the badge of his father, a police chief from Cape Elizabeth.

According to a police report, Mariner told the woman he was out of retirement and working for a special prostitution unit of the Maine State Police. Then he reportedly took her to a bus parking lot, pulled a gun on her, and demanded oral sex.

Police found him after the woman gave them details about his habits, and a surveillance video from the parking lot revealed his license plate.

He has been charged with gross sexual assault and impersonating a public servant.
