Woman stole doughnut, peed in public, offered cop sex

Police say a woman in Bartlesville, Oklahoma was in triple-trouble because she stole a doughnut from a truck, peed in a parking lot and offered to perform oral sex act on a cop for money.

The woman was being held in jail on charges of vehicle burglary, trespassing, indecent exposure and soliciting prostitution.

The truck owner complained to police that the woman stole the doughnut at about 2 a.m. Wednesday. A convenience store clerk asked police to charge the woman because he said she relieved herself outside the store.

Officer R.S. Detherow says that when he told the woman she was under arrest, she offered to perform a sex act for money.
