(FOX NEWS) – A former NASCAR driver is behind bars on federal charges after driving to a Florida restaurant last week to try and have sex with a 12-year-old girl.
Rick Crawford, 59, was arrested Wednesday in Lake Mary following an undercover sting operation involving a deputy with the Seminole County Sheriff posing as the girl’s father.
“She’s naked in the back, do you want to get out and see her?” the undercover said to Crawford, according to the complaint.
Crawford was arrested when he tried to get out of his pick-up truck, the court papers say.
According to the complaint, the sting began when Crawford responded last month to a Craigslist ad that said, “taboo is looking for taboo.”
