A 40-year-old man was arrested after driving 18 hours without stopping to use the restroom so that he could have sex with a teenager.

According to News 13 Orlando, Christopher Lanning, 40, drove from Kansas City, Kan., to Florida to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex.

Lanning, who is a little person, began chatting online with someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl. However, he was actually chatting with a cop who was a part of a sting to catch child molesters.

On April 8, Lanning drove his truck more than 1,200 miles and didn’t stop to use the restroom. When he was arrested, police found a bottle of urine in the front seat and the car smelled, according to the arresting officers.

Lanning was arrested at a gas station in Seminole County, Fla. He is currently being held in jail without bond.
