A homeless woman in the US has been charged with prostitution after she agreed to exchange oral sex for $36 and some chicken nuggets, Florida's Manatee County Sherrif's Office says.

On Tuesday last week, Alex Direeno, 22, waved unknowingly at an undercover police detective outside a petrol station in Bradenton, Florida. The detective invited her into his car and they drove away.

As they drove, the detective said he wanted oral sex, and after negotiating the price, she agreed to perform the act for NZ$36 as well as some chicken nuggets, the Bradenton Herald reports.

The detective soon pulled over where other police officers arrested Direeno. When searching her purse they found two hypodermic needles and other drug-related utensils.

Direeno was already on probation for three years after pleading guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, and grand theft auto. She was kept at the Manatee County Jail without bond.
