Alleged Pimp Chad Walker Arrested for Beating Up 15-Year-Old Prostitute
Alleged pimp Chad Walker had an issue with one of his gals not getting the money from a client upfront. As is often the case when a pimp needs to show the strength of his pimp-hand, he beat up the prostitute -- who happens to be a 15-year-old runaway from Tucson.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, 9-1-1 dispatcher got a call from the girl on June 6. She told the dispatcher she'd been beaten up and needed help.
When police got to the scene, they found the girl wearing nothing but underwear bottoms and a tank top, and she was crying.
She told police she and her "pimp," 26-year-old Walker, were driving in his car near Ocotillo Road and Ranch Boulevard in San Tan Valley when he became enraged over the money.
Then, the 6-foot-8, 300-pound Walker allegedly punched the girl in the face.
Afraid for her life, she jumped out of the car and called police.
Deputies contacted the girl's mother, who told them she'd already reported the girl to the Tucson Police Department as a runaway.
Police caught up with Walker yesterday. He was booked into jail on one count each of aggravated assault and causing a minor to engage in prostitution.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says additional charges are pending.
