If my answer is "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please acknowledge and mark it so. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I have more than 25 years of successful legal experience with cases like yours. My response is often general in nature because all facts are unknown to me. Specific answers require knowledge of all the relevant facts of your case.
Unless Sugar Daddy is the local district attorney, he cannot prosecute you for a crime (such as theft). If Sugar Daddy claims that you stole money from him, he has to go to the local police. From there is would be up to the district attorney to decide if you committed a crime.
Since Sugar Daddy sent you $2500 through an app or online payment but wanted to get $2000 of that money back, Sugar Daddy may be engaging in some type of scam, or possibly money laundering. (Why pay someone $2500 if you only want to give that person $500?) If Sugar Daddy is a scammer, its very unlikely that he will go to the police to report a theft of any amount.
If you are worried about being charged with theft of money, participating in a money laundering operation, or some other crime, discuss this situation with a criminal defense attorney.

If you were scamming someone you may go to jail for it. He may sue you also. None of us here are going to opine on your case without knowing the details.

You are scamming money, and he is soliciting sex for money. The 500 was a downpayment on, politely stated, companionship. Either he doesn't want to pay up or you didn't want to put out. You probably both want to avoid drawing too much attention to yourselves, particularly on the internet.
