LB Prostitution Sting: Cleveland Browns Linebacker Quentin Groves Arrested

A Cleveland Browns linebacker is in hot water after being arrested in an Ohio prostitution sting last week.

Football player Quentin Groves was caught during a police setup and arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute on April 17. The police report stated the athlete had agreed to a price while on a phone call with an undercover officer before a meeting, at a local hotel, according to the police report obtained by the Huffington Post.

The 28-year-old Mississippi native brought nearly $200 in cash and a box of condoms with him to the Orange Village hotel, which were later seized as evidence by authorities after his arrest.

"[Groves] made arrangements for certain acts ... and requested 'full service' and stated he would bring condoms," the police report stated. The Beachwood female officer was posing 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]," the report said.

According to the document, the athlete arrived at Homestead Guest Studios in Orange Village around 10:30 p.m. He was immediately taken into custody when he knocked on the designated hotel room door.

"We are aware of the situation and do not have any further comment," Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis told the Huffington Post about Groves' recent arrest. 

The linebacker is expected to appear in court on May 10.

He had just signed a $2.8 million two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns and joined the team for their first mini-camp last week, ESPN said. Groves was arrested when he was in town for training, the sports site reported.
