Was 32-year old Marine Corps veteran Daniel Sharp able to convice two female cops to have sex with him instead of giving him a ticket? If you think that sounds like an impossible porno plot that can't be real you would be right. The story was created as a joke by a man running a military humor page on Facebook.

The went viral via an article published on June 19, 2018 by 8Shit which was titled "Florida Man Convinces Two Female Officers To Have A Threesome Instead Of Giving Him A Ticket" (archived here) which opened:

A 32-year old Marine Corps combat veteran identified as Daniel Sharp, was pulled over at 3 AM after leaving Taco Bell when he was going at 29mph in a 20mph zone. Two unidentified female officers approached the vehicle and then the real trouble began.

They began to perform sexual acts in the back of the vehicle. Other officers arrived on the scene after several minutes, because they (the female officers) weren't reporting the situation, only to find that both officers and Mr Sharp were totally undressed, having sexual relations in public.
