The report reveals that police have claimed that D'Angelo was driving alone in is car when he made the offer. The NY Post reports police discovered $12,000 cash in the singer's car after the alleged $40 proposal and later charged him with solicitation.
NY Mag has more here adding, "This isn't the first time he's been embarrassingly arrested, of course: In 2005, five years after his classic sophomore album Voodoo was released, he was detained on drug-possession and drunk-driving charges in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia.
The report notes his mug shot photo revealed "a physical state a long way off from his famously chiseled physique in the "Untitled (How Does It Feel?)" video." D'Angelo is shown above in an even earlier mug shot picture.
