A woman known to New Yorkers as the “Hot Dog Hooker” was arrested Friday after police say she gave a police officer a massage without a license, then allegedly offered to engage in a sexual act for money.

Catherina G. Scalia, 47, a hot dog vendor and stripper, is said to have driven her wiener truck to a hotel in Long Island to meet the officer.

It’s not the first time Scalia has faced a prostitution charge.

After pleading guilty to a misdemeanor prostitution charge last year, she told CNN that her guilty plea was for being a stripper, not a prostitute.

“I pleaded guilty to stripper,” Scalia said. “A stripper is not a prostitute.”

She faced a similar charge nine years ago, too.

Walking out of jail wearing an open shirt and bikini top, Scalia told reporters that police keep framing her. “All these arrests are entrapment,” she said, according to CBS New York.
