Cross-Dresser Charged with Possession of Stun Gun During Escort Sting
Waukesha Police Department found electronic weapon and sex toys in man’s purse, according to criminal complaint.
A cross-dressing man lost his blonde wig while running from police Friday during an escort sting and landed himself in jail when police found sex toys and 3,000-volt stun gun in the man’s purse, according to a criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
Verness A. Hunt, 25, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was charged Monday with felony possession of an electric weapon and misdemeanor arresting an officer. He faces six years and nine months in prison and $20,000 in fines. Hunt remains jailed in lieu of $525 bail. He will return to court at 10 a.m. Nov. 21.
According to the criminal complaint:
Detectives working with the Waukesha Police Department arranged to meet with a self-described transgender escort who was offering “to keep company for a fee of $250 an hour” on a website. Police believed that the escort ad was in violation of city ordinances and spoke with the escort, who agreed to meet at a Waukesha hotel.
The man, who was unaware he was speaking with police, told a detective that he was to open the door while naked and leave $250 on a desk in the room. When the man, who was dressed as a woman, arrived at the hotel room, police identified themselves to him and he fled down the hallway. Police chased him and had to physically take the man into custody.
