Reclusive R&B star D'ANGELO was arrested in New York on Saturday morning (06Mar10) after mistaking a police officer for a prostitute.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, real name Michael Archer, approached the undercover cop and offered her cash for oral sex.
The star's arrest came during a break in recording his comeback album, his first since 2000's Voodoo.
Reports suggest police found $12,000 (£7,500) in cash during a post-arrest search of his Range Rover.
