A man dressed as a woman was working as a prostitute in a Kennewick hotel until the police were called.
A clerk at the Red Lion Inn called the police to remove the man on Wednesday. The clerk told police there was a steady stream of men going to the room for short visits.
One of the men tried to avoid the clerk, which got the hotel staff’s attention, police said on Friday.
Police said the prostitute did not deny what he was doing and agreed to return to Seattle. They are continuing to investigate before recommending charges, said police.
Officers contacted the man the clerk recognized and arrested him.
