    A South Florida adult nightclub dancer who was booked into jail for resisting arrest stripped and masturbated in a holding cell and offered to perform a sex act to get released, police said.

    Lakeisha Johnson, 29, is facing a charge of resisting an officer without violence in Hallandale Beach and was being held on $100 bond early Wednesday, Broward jail records showed. It was unknown whether she has an attorney. 

    During her appearance in bond court, Judge John Hurley refused to read aloud some of the allegations against Johnson.

    “File this under 'That's a doozy,’” Hurley said.

    Johnson's trip to jail began when she was arrested just after 1 a.m. Monday when officers responded to a possible theft of an iPad in the 5200 block of West Hallandale Beach Boulevard, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest report released Wednesday.

    The officers spotted Johnson jumping fences and walking between houses.

    “They suspected her of stealing an iPad and because she’s jumping fences, that’s suspicious, they decided to stop and question her,” said Gina Carter of the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

    When she was finally stopped, she began cursing and removing her clothes, the report said.

    “I advised the female numerous times to keep her clothes on and to calm down,” the arresting officer noted in the report.

    Johnson, who didn't have the iPad, at one point slapped the officer's arm, yelled at him, and was arrested at the scene.

    She was taken to a holding cell at the South Broward district station. Once there, she disrobed again and began to masturbate in her cell. When a female officer was called in to search Johnson in her cell, the stripper began performing some self-love again.

    But Johnson wasn’t done just yet.

    “She climbed on the bars shaking the cell bars and offered to perform sexual acts on the deputies in exchange for her release,” Carter said.

    When she appeared in bond court Wednesday, Judge Hurley, rarely at a loss for words was a bit tongue-tied at the case presented to him.

    “And uh, no I’m not going to say,” Judge Hurley said. “Nope, I’m not going to say. Not. Go ahead state do you have any priors? I’m definitely not going to say what’s on page 3!”

    Johnson was given a bond of $100 on the charge of resisting arrest.
