According to the Miami Herald Alex Direeno was being held Sunday without bond at the Manatee County Jail on charges of prostitution, possession of drug paraphernalia and on outstanding warrants.
Records show that the incident happened last week. An undercover detective told the woman he wanted oral sex and she agreed to do it for $25.
As the undercover detective drove north on 14th Street West, he told the suspect that he wanted oral sex and she agreed to do it for $25. As they briefly went back and forth on the price, she finally agreed to perform the act for $25 and Chicken McNuggets.
The detective showed Direeno he had cash and he pulled over in the 4200 block of 14th Street West, where other detectives were waiting to take her into custody.
When Direeno’s purse was searched, detectives found two hypodermic needles, several small baggies, a spoon and a burnt glass pipe, consistent with either heroin or crack cocaine use.
Last month, Direeno was placed on probation for three years after she pleaded guilty to grand theft auto and possession of drug paraphernalia.
