COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Black Lives Matter activist Charles Wade was arrested in suburban Washington D.C. after a White female teenager he claims he was “housing” for the night was busted for prostitution by an undercover cop.
The girl, 17, was busted less than an hour later by a vice squad officer who answered her Backpage ad for sex.
The Backpage ad, which is still online, advertised “Quick stay specials tonight and tomorrow.”
In a police report obtained by Ddotomen.com, the undercover officer stated he exchanged text messages with the female who asked if he was a cop or a pimp.
The detective responded, “Hell no. I just like nice boobs.”
The detective was directed to room 412 at a Howard Johnson motel at 9113 Baltimore Avenue in College park, Maryland.
The detective arrested the White female at the Howard Johnson on April 25.
Wade, 33, who used his government issued driver’s license to book the room, was tracked down later that day and slapped with a dozen charges including human trafficking and prostitution.
It is a bad look for Wade. Subsequently, he posted a statement on Twitter.com claiming he believed the 17-year-old girl he “housed” in a motel room was 20 years old.
Wade said he used his hotel rewards points to book a room at a discounted rate for the young lady, “as I have done countless times.”
Wade also said the girl was arrested for prostitution “while I was out of the room and heading to the grocery store.”
Wade said he was arrested because he used his “government issued ID” to book the room.
Wade’s next hearing date is scheduled for June 3.
