Police in Iowa, arrested a priest who allegedly wanted to pay a prostitute for sex.

The Page County priest was arrested on Saturday morning, after he allegedly tried to convince the woman to perform sex acts on him in exchange for money.

However, the woman was an undercover officer working in a prostitution sting operation.

The prostitution bust was held in Hamburg, about 40 miles from Clarinda, where the priest lives.
