Trevor Jessup decided to visit Pandora’s Box, a strip joint in Palmetto, Florida.
While there, Jessup and a stripper went into a VIP room for a reportedly “consensual encounter,” according to an arrest affidavit from the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
But when the performance was over the stripper told deputies she saw Jessup reach into her purse and pull out some cash.
When the stripper yelled for help, a bouncer responded and held Jessup until authorities arrived at the club.
Jessup told deputies that he had paid for a sexual favor and was not pleased with the performance, the record states.
He also told deputies that the stripper thought the money was a tip, the affidavit states.
Deputies found $55 inside Jessup’s pant pocket.
He was charged with petit theft 1st offense.
