Here’s how far $20 goes with Midtown’s male hustlers
The red four-door sedan pulled slowly into a tiny strip-mall parking lot on Ponce de Leon and idled as a man in a plaid shirt approached the window.
“I’m trying to get into a little somethin … you look like someone I usually deal with,” the man in the plaid shirt said to the male driver.
He opened the door on the passenger side and got in, and the red car pulled onto Ponce. The driver barely went a block before the man in the plaid shirt offered sex for money—$20. That was all he needed to say to have two Atlanta police patrol cars to rush up and a team of officers surround the car and arrest him.
“You got me man, you got me,” he repeated three times to the driver as the blue lights flashed behind him and officers swarmed the car.
That, in a nutshell, is Operation Summer Heat. The Atlanta police sting netted 61 arrests for prostitution, the vast majority of which included officers posing as johns looking to hire sex workers for same-sex fun. [AJC]
