Pratt admitted to police he had refused to let Landry leave the hotel room until he got his money back. Landry later confessed to spending the money on crack cocaine, according to police documents.
When he was taken into custody, Pratt allegedly told officers he "just wanted a good time."
Pratt was booked on one count of prostitution. Landry was booked with prostitution(second conviction) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
