HOUSTON - A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper is accused of soliciting sex in exchange for money.

Michael Dwayne Fillmore, 41, is charged with misdemeanor prostitution. Sheriff’s officials would only say Fillmore offered to pay $150 for sex. Sheriff’s officials said Fillmore responded to an advertisement that turned out to be an undercover detective.

DPS officials said Fillmore was off-duty at the time of his arrest. Fillmore joined DPS in March of 2002 and is a highway patrolman assigned to the Rosenberg duty station.

Bond was set at $500.

Fillmore was suspended after the arrest.

DPS released a statement that read in part:

"The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the criminal charge. The administrative case will be referred to the Office of Inspector General."
