A police officer was busted for soliciting a prostitute after he was beaten in a motel room.
The Ohio Sheriff’s deputy was arrested after he was choked and robbed in the motel room in a sex romp gone wrong.
Christopher Cassell, 24, was arrested and charged with solicitation. The former deputy, who has been described as a “good officer,” has resigned from his job at the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office after the embarrassing incident.
Cassell spoke with Dawn Gibson, 43, on Craigslist, and the pair agreed to meet for sex at the Elyria’s CareFree Inn.
Cassell agreed to pay the woman for sex, but instead of having sex with the woman, he was robbed and nearly choked to death.
After the officer handed over $100 to Gibson, three men broke into the motel room and attacked Cassell.
The officer’s handgun and wallet were stolen and therefore, Cassell was forced to report the incident to the police.
Police have arrested Dominique Mincy, 27, and Jordan Marquez, 21. They were charged with robbery. Officers recovered the weapon from the suspects.
Gibson was also arrested on a charge of complicity to robbery, solicitation and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police are still searching for the third suspect.
