Police arrested a 20-year-old man at the Renaissance Hotel downtown after he allegedly attempted to use someone else’s credit card number to reserve a hotel room to engage in prostitution.

According to Metro police, the Renaissance alerted them after Kenneth Antwan Cody allegedly tried to reserve an $847 hotel room through Expedia using a computer in the hotel lobby and a fraudulent credit card number. Cody told police he had notified “customers” he was in town and accepting appointments.

Cody, who is from College Park, Ga., is charged with promoting prostitution and fraudulent use of a credit card over $500, and is being held on $60,000 bond. He is set to appear in court on May 25.

Police claim in an arrest warrant that the man’s cell phone contained text messages with local phone numbers detailing prices for sexual services and a picture of Cody’s penis that he’d sent in a text message.

Police said an ad on Backpage.com listing Cody in the adult services section confirmed his story, and at the time of his arrest, Cody had a warrant in Georgia for fraudulent use of a credit card under an alias he used.

He told police he engaged in sexual services to pay bills.

This guy has to be kidding. He "charges"?

I don't think his face is what the customers are interested in. :)

Maybe not, but they gotta look at it before and after.

I think that pic is after he took the wig off...

Pictured above you have your average Georgia football fan.

Fightcrib, you are always fanning the flames of intolerance. It seems clear to me that Kenneth Antwan Cody is not a Georgia fan. He is a Kentucky fan. I bet Calipari was listed in his phone.

ha nice.

Might i add, if you are a dangerlover, than you would face certain Magic Johnson-esque danger being this man's lover for a night.

I love danger so much! But not that much.

What's the problem with this guy just trying to pay his bills? Those UK jerseys don't come cheap, and this guy clearly enjoys his work.

By: fightcrib on 5/21/10 at 11:07

He would have to sleep with like 10 men to afford to buy one ticket at the Rupp.

On another note this guy is going to enjoy prison way too much. Even the other inmates are going to eventually get tired of him dropping the soap every chance he gets.

I bet you're right fightcrib. Plus he'll get to meet several members of the UT basketball team...maybe one of them will even make him their b*tch.

You think Tyler Smith is going to take it to the hole?

By: dangerlover on 5/21/10 at 11:24

Fightcrib, I think everyone saw that one coming. That was too easy. You used to regale us with tales of youngsters being coked out on high grade Belmont blow and munchkins eating pumpkins laced with pcp.

By: fightcrib on 5/21/10 at 11:34

Alright, fair enough dangerlover. I would like that last joke stricken from the record.

But i have a serious question: Why is this guy both dressed up as a woman and yet he sends pictures of his male private to other men? I guess this guy is like that woman on that radio McDonald's add that can't make up her mind.

By: dangerlover on 5/21/10 at 12:06

Fightcrib, you should really educate yourself on the sexual perversions of others. Some people like a man dressed like a lady. Some people like to watch women step on bugs. Some people like to wear diapers. Some people like to midgets wrestle in ice cream. It doesn't matter why he was doing these things. What does matter is that Uk gets its money so they can pay Calipari.

By: fightcrib on 5/21/10 at 12:10

Women stepping on bugs?? so they must really like that scene from "Indiana Jones and the temple of Doom"

If people get off on women eating weird stuff, than the same movie offers a scene where she is served eye-ball soup. Man Stephen Spielberg and George are really sick.

What is wrong with strange fetishes dangerlover and fightcrib? I like to be called fluffy when I'm being intimate. Does that offend you guys? And for the record, I did like that scene from the temple of doom. It made my cats go crazy though.

WHAT A HOTTIE! I would like to get high and do this guy.
