A Phillies fan was arrested yesterday for allegedly trying to prostitute herself in exchange, no of course it wouldn’t be for money, for a World Series ticket, according to Jeane MacIntosh and Maggie Haberman of the NY Post.
Susan Finkelstein, 43, was nabbed after allegedly soliciting an undercover Bensalem, Pa., cop who answered her innuendo-laced craigslist ad seeking the coveted ducats.
The married Finkelstein posted her ad — with a subject line that read, “DESPERATE BLONDE NEEDS WS TIX (Philadelphia)” — on Monday in the “tickets for sale/wanted” section.
Describing herself as a “Diehard Phillies fan” and “gorgeous tall buxom blonde,” Finkelstein said she was “in desperate need” of two tickets to see the Phillies play the Yankees at Citizens Bank Park.
Then came the zinger: “Price negotiable — I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!”
The suggestive line caught the attention of a Web-trolling cop, who set up a meeting at a Bucks County bar.
The officer said he had one ticket, but when Finkelstein said she needed two, the cop said his brother might have an extra, Bucks County Public Safety Director Fred Harran told The Post.
“She offered to take care of both men,” Harran said.
Asked what specific activities Finkelstein offered, Harran said, “Let’s just say she wanted to go around the bases the other way.”
The vivacious Finkelstein was cuffed and charged with prostitution, a misdemeanor.
Her lawyer has argued that this is simply a case of Philly Fever and that nobody named Mrs. Finkelstein would prostitute herself out. What a joke of a case he’s got on his hands.
And of course this comes from the Post, we’d expect nothing less from them.
