A Georgia man called police early Monday morning after a visit with a prostitute because he was upset a pimp kicked him out of the room before he finished having sex.

But after 23-year-old Loren Ashley Pillow contacted Dalton police, he went to jail for pandering, according to a police report. The other two parties were arrested, as well. Dalton police charged 23-year-old Ashley Elizabeth Blackmon with prostitution and 39-year-old Maurice Deon Donohoo with pimping.

According to the report, Pillow met Blackmon online. He believed her name was "Melissa Anne," and the two chatted through a phone app called Meet Me. They both arrived in room No. 104 of the Budgetel Inn and Suites on Thornton Avenue at 2:30 a.m.

Blackmon said Pillow laid $140 on a table. They then had sex for an hour. That was how long he paid for, Blackmon said. But after 60 minutes, Pillow hadn't finished. Nevertheless, Donohoo busted through the door and told Pillow to get out.

At 3:33 a.m. — one hour and three minutes after he met with Blackmon — Pillow called police. He said someone stole $140 from him.

According to the report, Pillow, of Villa Rica, Ga., said he and "Melissa Anne" agreed to meet at the hotel at 2:30 a.m. But from there, his story differs from hers. He said they agreed to have sex, but the intercourse was free. He said Blackmon told him she needed money, that she was in dire straights. And so he gave her the cash, trying to help his new friend.

They had sex. Then, he said he went to the bathroom. But when he got out, some middle-aged man was in the room, yelling at him that he needed to leave.

When officers arrived at the hotel room, Blackmon said that Donohoo had known about her arrangement of sex for cash, as well as "other transactions occurring for several weeks."
