Emmanuel Augustine is seen in this booking photo.   (Police handout)

(Newser) – Well this must have been awkward: The Harris County, Texas, Constable's Office sent a deputy out undercover as a prostitute yesterday morning, and sure enough she was soon propositioned—by a deputy from the same precinct. Emmanuel Augustine, 29, was off duty at the time, but ABC 13 reports that he was wearing his uniform pants. Precinct administrators were immediately summoned to the scene of the arrest and suspended Augustine without pay. Augustine was booked, but released on his own recognizance yesterday evening. He faces up to 180 days in jail.

She asked if he was trying to blow her cover, and he became confused.
