An undercover officer in Florida recently found out just how valuable McDonald's chicken nuggets can be when a woman offered to trade him sexual favors for some.
It's reported that 22-year-old Alex Direeno was negotiating the price for oral sex with the undercover policeman, and they eventually agreed upon $25 and some chicken nuggets.
Direeno was subsequently arrested and charged with prostitution, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia due to reports that officers discovered multiple hypodermic needles, several tiny baggies, a spoon and a burnt glass pipe, which is consistent with either crack cocaine or heroin use.
