“If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?” Randle asked a female jail employee, who replied, “No.”
Randle also said:
Take a good picture. I’m not about to look like I’m a criminal in this mug shot. How’s my mug shot look?
To which a different officer responded: “This is not a damn trading card.”
