Miami Gardens police chief Stephen E. Johnson was fired after being arrested Friday night for allegedly soliciting a prostitute in Dania Beach.

According to a Broward Sheriff's Office police report, Johnson, 53, was arrested Friday evening at a hotel as part of an undercover operation conducted by BSO's Dania Beach Crime Suppression Team. Detectives had placed an escort advertisement on offering a "two-girl special" along with price rates and a telephone number.

A detective posing as a prostitute at the hotel answered the phone when Johnson called. During their conversation, police said, Johnson stated that he wanted to "do everything."

Johnson was quoted a price of $80 for a 30-minute session. When the detective on the phone advised him of the "two-girl special," Johnson said he was interested and agreed to a price of $100 for two girls, according to the report.

At 6:20 p.m. Friday, Johnson arrived at Room 423 and knocked on the door; he was let into the room by an undercover detective. Johnson produced the $100; the transaction was captured on audio and video. Johnson was subsequently arrested. He had two condoms in his pocket at the time of his arrest, deputies said.

He was booked into the Broward Main Jail on Friday night on a charge of soliciting prostitution. Bond was set at $300. It was unknown early Saturday whether he had bonded out.

Come on at 53 you cannot have enough money to just buy drinks, dinner and such and do it the normal way....really
