A Cleveland Browns linebacker was arrested in a prostitution sting in Ohio.
Quentin Groves was arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute after being caught in a police sting at a local hotel on April 17. He had agreed upon a price during a phone call before the meeting, according to the police report.
“[Groves] made arrangements for certain acts … and requested ‘full service’ and stated he would bring condoms,” the police report stated. A female officer from Beachwood posed as an escort in the sex-for-hire sting.
“He agreed to one hour of time for [$100] and was told that anal would be an additional [$20],” according to the report. He arrived at room 231 of the Homestead Guest Studios in Orange Village at about 10:28 p.m., the document stated. He knocked on the door and was immediately taken into custody without incident.
A box of condoms and $195.70 in cash were taken as evidence. Groves is due in on May 10.
“We are aware of the situation and do not have any further comment,” Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis told The Huffington Post regarding Groves’ solicitation arrest.
Groves, who signed a two-year $2.8 million contract with the Browns just last month, joined the team for their first minicamp of the 2013 season last week, according to ESPN. The 28-year-old Mississippi native was arrested while in town for the training, the outlet notes.
