GASTONIA, NC (WBTV) - Police have arrested a Gastonia woman who they say was flashing truckers for the purpose of soliciting sex and later assaulted an officer at the jail.

The incident happened at the Waffle House on Bessemer City Road early Wednesday morning.

According to the arrest citation, several truck drivers reported that Lisa Marie McDaniels, 30, offered them "her services and was pulling up her dress trying to offer herself to them."

She was arrested by a Gastonia Police officer and placed into the back of a patrol car.
