We perish because we know not… #TLENews
Maybe it’s never too early?
TMZ is reporting that Pro Football Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp was arrested on Monday morning in Phoenix, accused of soliciting a prostitute. The details surrounding his arrest are unclear at this point, but the time of arrest was listed as 7 a.m.
The hotel where Sapp was staying told TMZ through a representative that they were “contacted by the Phoenix Police Dept. today in a matter involving a guest.”
NFL Network has also removed Sapp’s biography from the official “On-Air Talent” list on its website. One source has said Sapp’s future with the channel is “not looking good.” However, nothing has been announced as of yet.
Sapp was in the Phoenix area to cover Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Sapp has arrests in the past — both of which were on charges of domestic battery in 2010 and 2014.
The charges were dropped in the 2010 case.
Now this is coming on the heels of Greg Anthony getting swept in a D.C. sting in January.
Former NBA player Greg Anthony pleaded not guilty to prostitution solicitationin a D.C. courtroom Monday afternoon.
Court documents have revealed new details about the basketball analyst’s arrest, describing the conversation Anthony had with an undercover officer before his arrest Jan. 16 at a Washington hotel.
The documents show the undercover officer told Anthony that intercourse would cost $80. Asked if he wanted her to “dress up,” he responded “oh yeah,” the court documents say.
The documents also explain more about how Anthony wound up in room 805 of the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel. Anthony responded to an escort ad authorities placed in the escort section of the classifieds website Backpage, a court document says.
Anthony, 47, was suspended by CBS and Turner Sports following his arrest.
He issued a statement at the time in which he apologized to his wife, family and colleagues, calling his actions a “mistake” and “lapse of judgment.”
Before his arrest, Anthony had been scheduled to announce a basketball game between Michigan State and Maryland in College Park, Maryland, which is near Washington. In the NBA, Anthony played 11 seasons with six teams from 1991-92 to 2001-02, including the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers. In college he was on the UNLV team that won the 1990 NCAA tournament, with teammates Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon.
Police say Anthony could face up to 90 days in jail if convicted of the prostitution solicitation charge.
