A Texas man was arrested this week for trying to “buy” a 14-year-old girl, CBS46 reports.
Ricky James Overhulser, 53, of Lubbock, is accused of pulling his car up alongside the girl at a gas station and ordering her into his car. The girl’s mother was inside the 7-11 store, paying for gas.
Overhulser told her twice to get into his car and asked her if she “dated,” CBS46 reports. She said “no” and went inside to get her mother.
Overhulser drove away, but then returned. CBS46 reports he asked the mother, “how much for your daughter,” and said, “I want her, what do you want for it?”
The woman called him a “dirty old man” and informed him she was calling police.
By the time authorities found him, Overhulser was in jail on other charges. Police added new charges relating to his attempted kidnapping of the girl.
Overhulser is a registered sex offender and spent 10 years in jail for sex crimes involving a 16-year-old girl.

Trump says he can ‘absolutely’ force governors to reopen churches if he decides to do so
At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.
The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.
"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."
Trump tells a reporter to take off coronavirus mask and stop being ‘politically correct’
At Tuesday's White House coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump got into an argument with Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason, when he commanded him to take off his protective face mask.
Mason refused to do so, at which point Trump mocked him, saying "You want to be politically correct."
Trump also repeated a line previously made by his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, asking why former Vice President Joe Biden wore a mask when he was in public but not standing close to anyone, when he wasn't wearing a mask at home with his wife right next to him.
WATCH: Trump wonders if he should start taking insulin
On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.
"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.
"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."
Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.
