Anti-Gay College Professor Caught On Grindr
Shame, when you could've just loved yourself. A college professor and church elder has been arrested on a misdemeanor charge of patronizing prostitution after allegedly offering to pay young men for sexual favors. Barry Poyner, a communications professor at Truman State University in Kirksville, Mo., is accused of soliciting an undercover officer posing as an 18-year-old college student on the gay social networking app Grindr. Court documents claim that the Truman State University Police Department received a tip that Poyner was “harassing male Truman students for sexual contact as well as offering to pay for items for sexual favors by using the app Grindr.” The Kirksville Police Department set up an undercover profile and was contacted by a user with the handle “DILF.” The user told the undercover officer that he “would love to have a sugar daddy relationship,” and that in previous relationships he had provided gift cards, clothing and money to his partners, reports the Kirksville Daily Express. On Dec. 3, “DILF” reached out to the undercover office and asked for sexual favors in exchange for providing fuel for the officer’s vehicle, adding that he “might throw in an Arby’s card LOL.” “DILF” agreed to meet the undercover officer at a local gas station to provide the fuel before the sexual favors. He provided his location, which matched Poyner’s address, and then Poyner arrived at the gas station. He attempted to flee when officers approached his vehicle, but was pulled over several blocks later. #FunnyMoneyRock is a content platform powered by Icon City Entertainment for urban lgbt news and related musical content and events.
