Police in Florida have arrested a prostitute who they say works cheap -- a couple of burgers, plus tips.

The Smoking Gun reports that an undercover cop pulled up to a woman on a street in Bradenton last Friday night. She got in the car and the officer said he was looking for sex, and asked her “if she wanted to help me out with that.”

The police report said that the woman responded that they "could go have sexual intercourse if I bought her two double cheese burgers off the dollar menu at McDonald’s. I agreed to the deal and purchased the hamburgers for $2.75.”

The woman also said a "tip" would be appropriate. The officer said he gave her $60. She kept $40 (plus the burgers) and directed the officer to a vacant parking lot “to park in to complete the deal.”

That's when she was arrested. Christine Baker, 47, is charged with misdemeanor prostitution.
