Naturally, the boot-lickers at CNN are calling it a “Sex Crime Sting”.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office launched a six-day undercover investigation, dubbed “Operation Santa’s Naughty List,” that led to more than 120 people facing prostitution or drug charges.
According to jail records, Tommy Gainey was arrested for soliciting a prostitute and charged with a first-degree misdemeanor. He was booked Dec. 8 and later released after posting the $500 bail.
In a news conference Wednesday morning, Sheriff Grady Judd (R) said that police used online advertisements to arrange meetings between the suspects and the undercover detectives. Judd held up Gainey’s mugshot and described him as a married 44-year-old with a PGA Tour card who was in town for a charity golf tournament.
“He was supposed to be in the next morning tee-off,” the revoltingly glib Judd said. “He didn’t make it. He was a scratch. … He missed his tee time the next morning.”
What a piece of shit.
A one-time Tour winner, Gainey has made four starts this season, most recently at the RSM Classic. Gainey, who lives in South Carolina, was set to play in this week’s final stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School.
TMZ was the first to report Gainey’s arrest.
It is not known how many gloves (if any) he was wearing at the time of his arrest.
