Warren Sapp, 42, former NFL defensive tackle and pro football hall of famer,
was arrested for soliciting prostitution and assault while in Arizona
for the NFL title game as an analyst for the NFL Network. Police officers
were investigating a noise complaint at a Downtown hotel, when a female
contacted police to report that she had been assaulted.
The incident occurred in a guest room, after she and another woman were
hired in the hotel lobby as escorts. Once in the guest room, an argument
broke out over money and a physical altercation ensued, spilling out into
the hallway of the hotel. Sapp was questioned by authorities, and admitted
involvement in the act of prostitution but denied assaulting the female
escorts. Both of the female escorts sustained minor injuries consistent
with a struggle, observed by investigators.
Sapp was arrested and booked on charges of soliciting prostitution and
two counts of assault.
