Police: Man Pawned Wedding Ring To Pay For Hooker

Whenever I think things are starting to look bad here in North Carolina, South Carolinians do something to make me realize things aren’t as bad here as they seem….

I’m so thankful we have them to draw attention away from the circus in Raleigh…

 

GREENWOOD, SC (WLTX/WUSA9) — According to Greenwood, South Carolina police a man was arrested after selling his wedding ring to a pawn shop, for $20 to pay a prostitute.

Marvin Holmes allegedly picked up a prostitute and told her he didn’t have any money, but he drove her to a pawn shop where he took out his wedding ring and sold it for $20, say authorities. An officer pulled him over in an area known for prostitution and drug dealers, according to authorities. Holmes then reportedly admitted he was with a prostitute and told the officer he was having problems with his wife so he started looking for sex.

Holmes was charged for solicitation of prostitution and driving under suspension, according to authorities.
