A man was arrested on a charge of soliciting prostitution after trying to pay a prostitute with fast food, according to police in Wyoming.

Natrona County police said that they have arrested 22-year-old David Mangus, after being accused of trying to give a prostitute a McDonald’s burger and French fries in exchange for sex.

In court, Mangus pleaded not guilty to one count of soliciting prostitution. He was booked into the Natrona County jail, where he is being held pending a bail hearing.

According to the criminal complaint, police placed an advertisement on Backpage.com under the guise of a prostitute looking for customers.

Magnus answered the advertisement and arranged to meet the prostitute for sex. Instead of paying cash in exchange for sex, Mangus reached an agreement to provide the prostitute with food instead.

Specifically, a McDonald’s burger and French fries. Mangus was taken into custody after arriving with a bag containing food from McDonald’s.

In addition to Mangus, police arrested Bailey Bruce of Evansville, Cassandra Combs of St. Paul, Minnesota, Canisha Martinez of Casper, and Alexandra Tyler.

All women were charged with prostitution.
