Brandon Budd, a driver scheduled to participate in the Toughest Monster Truck Tour in East Palestine, Ohio was arrested Thursday on charges of engaging in criminal prostitution, compelling prostitution, possessing criminal tools and attempting to commit a crime. Authorities arrested Budd after he responded to an online ad offering sex with a minor. After being taken into custody, he was later released on a $25,000 bond and ordered not to have any contact with juveniles. Budd, who has been driving competitively since 2009, will not be driving in the event this weekend and has been replaced. He is scheduled to appear in court on February 9.
