Metro Nashville Police say 35-year-old Karl Chandler replied to an escort ad that was posted by officers Monday, where he agreed to exchange both money and some cocaine for a sexual act. As he arrived at the agreed-upon location and spoke with the undercover operative posing as a prostitute, he stated he didn’t bring any cash, just the cocaine. An agreement was reached for 1 gram of cocaine in exchange for oral sex, as he tossed the drugs on the bed. As he was taken into custody, officers located 5 additional grabs of hard cocaine and 5.5 grams of powder cocaine.
Karl Q. Chandler of Enclave Drive in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 8th, charged with patronizing a prostitute, felony drug possession, and felony drug possession with intent to distribute. He is free on a $42,000 bond.
