An 18-year-old man in Oklahoma was arrested Wednesday for allegedly impersonating an FBI agent online to blackmail a prostitute into giving him free sex. The problem is, he was talking to an undercover cop pretending to be a prostitute.
High school student Anthony Maurice Harris thought he was contacting a hooker online, but the website was an undercover sting operation run by the Tulsa Police Department, Tulsa World reports.
Harris stated that he was an FBI agent in messages to a woman he thought was a prostitute.
“If you don’t want to go to jail, we will have to do some negotiating,” Harris allegedly told the undercover cops, then described sex acts that the hooker could perform to avoid charges. (RELATED: Prostitute: I Slept With California Cops, Even While Underage)

The person Harris thought was a prostitute arranged a meeting at a Tulsa, Ok., hotel, where police arrested the young man. Harris was also charged with having drug paraphernalia, police said.
