Police: Fake cop got free hooker sex

Feb. 8, 2012 at 6:14 PM

NEW YORK, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- New York police said they arrested a man accused of posing as a police officer and threatening to arrest hookers unless they gave him free sex.

Police said William Taylor, 32, posed as an officer in the area near Stanley and Pennsylvania Avenues at least four times since the start of the year and forced prostitutes to perform sex acts for free to avoid arrest, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Investigators with the Internal Affairs Bureau said they tracked Taylor using the cellphone number he allegedly gave one of the prostitutes in the hopes of becoming her pimp and arrested him Monday.

Taylor was charged with criminal impersonation of a police officer, criminal sex act, patronizing a prostitute, assault, forcible touching, kidnapping and criminal possession of a weapon.
