College student files suit for $1.8M saying Las Vegas hooker didn't spend enough time with him
A New York college student who claims a Las Vegas hooker did not spend enough time making him happy has sued her escort service for $1.8 million.
Unhappy customer Hubert Blackman said he was traumatized by the "tragic event," especially when he called cops and they threatened to bust him, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.
"I also would like to get my $275 payment back and a $1.8 million verdict for the tragic event that happened," Blackman said in the suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court, the paper said.
Blackman was staying at the Stratosphere on Dec. 17 when he called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to hire a stripper.
Blackman said the woman performed a lap dance for $155 and a sex act for another $120.
Instead of staying for the agreed-upon one hour, she left after just 30 minutes.
The hapless tourist called to demand some of his money back.
Then he called cops, who told him he could face arrest because prostitution is illegal in Sin City.
Blackman told the newspaper the stripper solicited the sex act and he was unaware prostitution was illegal in Vegas.
