    The mayor of the city of Fairfax, Virginia, has been arrested after he allegedly gave methamphetamine to an undercover detective in exchange for a sexual encounter, Fairfax County police said.

    Richard "Scott" Silverthorne, 50, was arrested Thursday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Tysons Corner. The mayor, who has held office since 2012, also worked as a substitute teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools, according to the district.

    Police in late July received a tip that Silverthorne may have been trading meth for sex on a website used to arrange casual sexual encounters between men. An undercover detective created a profile on the website and Silverthorne contacted him within a few days, according to police.

    Silverthorne allegedly told the detective he could provide meth "in exchange for sexual encounters," police said. The detective agreed to meet with Silverthorne, who agreed to bring other men to the engagement, according to police.

    Police said Silverthorne brought the meth to the Chain Bridge Road hotel on Thursday. He was arrested and charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Authorities said they don't know how long Silverthrone was on the website, which police did not identify.

    "I know he had one other relationship on the website besides us," Capt. Jack Harden said during a news conference Friday.

    Silverthorne, who was diagnosed with cancer last year, has been the mayor of Fairfax since 2012 and was re-elected in May. A city spokesman declined to comment on the arrest.

    Police said Silverthorne also served as a substitute teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools. A spokesman for the school district told NBC News that Silverthorne worked "briefly" as a FCPS substitute teacher starting in April 2016 and that his position has been terminated.

    Investigators also arrested Silverthorne's alleged suppliers, Juan Jose Fernandez, 34, and Caustin Lee McLaughlin, 21.

    Fernandez was charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine, felony possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

    McLaughlin was charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine, felony obstruction of justice, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Police said McLaughlin physically resisted arrest, and a detective had to deploy his stun gun. There were no injuries.

    Silverthorne, Fernandez and McLaughlin were taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center for processing. Silverthorne was later released.

    Well I meant in in a way that when you go to great measures to hide something or to deceive, especially when you are a public figure, things are bound to come out. In a lot of cases its not even about the alleged gay sex, its about the deception. I am also suprised that he is a Democrat. It is usually the anti-gay assholes who go down like this....or should I say get down like this....

    Lots of friends said the same thing, but I think it is not all that surprising. This guy's been in politics for a long time, was son of a prominent local politician. When he started out in political life it was not yet cool to be gay as a Democrat. So, once you start down that path of keeping it hidden, it gets harder to step off and say who you are.
    Also worth noting the sex for drugs link here that has a particular local resonance - it's what got Marion Barry caught. Those of us who were here when that went down and saw the video (endlessly replayed) thought at the time it was as mcuh about the sex, not the drugs.
    When you add in the bankruptcy, this guy's problems were crashing into each other at an increasingly frenzied rate.
