A Wyoming man who arranged to pay a prostitute with a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder and French fries was arrested when he showed up for the illicit encounter, food in hand, only to discover that he had been snared in a police sting.
As part of an undercover operation, cops in Casper placed a Backpage.com ad in the guise of a hooker trolling for clients.
Investigators charge that David Mangus, 22, answered the ad and arranged last week to meet the purported prostitute for sex. But instead of paying cash in return for oral and vaginal sex, cops say, Mangus worked out a deal to provide the hooker with food instead.
Specifically, a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with cheese and a medium size order of French fries.
Mangus, seen above, was arrested when he arrived to meet the supposed hooker. He was carrying a bag with the McDonald’s grub when undercover officers took him into custody.
Mangus was charged with soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor. He was booked into the Natrona County jail and later released.
