DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Alonzo Liverman didn't have any cash when he approached an undercover officer posing as a prostitute in Daytona Beach on Monday morning, police said.

But he did have a salad from Applebee's.

According to an arrest report released Thursday, the officer, who was working a reverse prostitution sting in the area of Fremont and South

Ridgewood avenues, told Liverman she was hungry and asked, "You got food?"

Liverman, 29, said he had a salad, the report said.

The undercover officer then offered sex in exchange for the salad. The report said Liverman replied, "You ready to go?"

Liverman was among 10 people arrested during the sting, conducted in an area known for street prostitution, police said.

Also arrested was 33-year-old Tim Pickett, who played basketball at Florida State University and overseas.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said his agency is trying to improve the quality of life for residents who live along the U.S. 1 corridor.

Prostitution leads to drug deals, domestic violence, burglaries and other crimes in the area, he said.

Police are also continuing to investigate three unsolved murders of prostitutes who were picked up in the Ridgewood Avenue area.
