Busted! PBSO Arrests Happy Ending Suspect

There he is, folks, the guy that PBSO says forced a West Palm Beach masseuse to perform oral sex on him. His name is Gerald Hansen -- spelled just like the surname of the host of the Dateline show To Catch a Predator. Coincidence?

U.S. Marshals nabbed Gerald Hansen in Sarasota, where he was booked for armed sexual battery with a firearm, lewd and lascivious behavior, kidnapping, grand theft, and two counts of armed robbery with a firearm.
