A Florida woman is facing prostitution charges after offering to trade oral sex for $25 and some Chicken McNuggets from McDonald’s to an undercover officer.
Alex Direeno, 22, is being held in Manatee County Jail on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and outstanding warrants over the incident Tuesday April 25. Direeno allegedly waved down an undercover officer with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office as she walked out of a Marathon gas station in Bradenton, Florida, reports Miami Herald.
After getting in a car and driving away from the gas station with Direeno, the officer, a detective with the sheriff’s office Special Investigations Division, told Direeno he wanted oral sex and would pay her $25. They haggled over the price for a few minutes and settled on a fee of $25 and Chicken McNuggets.
The number of Chicken McNuggets Direeno requested is not specified in the police report.
The detective pulled the car into a nearby area where other detectives were waiting and showed her the cash. The police then arrested Direeno on prostitution charges. Police found two hypodermic needles, a burnt glass pipe, a spoon and a few baggies in Direeno’s purse, which they suspect she used for either heroin or crack cocaine, reports WNCN.
Direeno is already on three years probation after pleading guilty to grand theft auto and possession of drug paraphernalia in March.
