(Niagara Falls, N.Y) - Niagara Falls Public Works Employee James Curtis was charged Wednesday night with Patronizing a Prostitute while on the job.

Under-cover Niagara Falls Police officers spotted a known prostitute getting out of his city owned pickup truck at the corner of 19th Street and Ferry Avenue in Niagara Falls around 6:20pm.

23-year old Angelina "Angie" Herkey told police that Curtiss picked her up behind the OTB, took her to a secluded area, where she performed oral sex for $10.

Curtis has been put on unpaid leave and faces misdemeanor criminal charges.

James Curtis spoke to Eyewitness News on Friday and maintains that he was only giving Angie Herkey a ride.
