Phoenix, Arizona – In the wake of Super Bowl XLIX, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warren Sapp was arrested by Phoenix Police for his involvement with prostitutes. He was arrested for soliciting prostitution, and for assaulting 2 women Monday. This misbehavior has led to the NFL Network dropping him from the payroll as a correspondent. He had been in Glendale, Arizona to report on the Super Bowl, on behalf of the NFL Network, but the prostitution was not a part of his job.

During Sapp’s career in the NFL, he player for an impressive 12 seasons between the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He earned many millions of dollars during his long career, but he has always had legal and financial troubles. He has a history of alleged violence with women, and filed for bankruptcy a few years ago.
The post Super Bowl prostitution took place late Sunday night and spilled into early Monday morning. Sapp had two women in his room, who were both presumably prostitutes. When it came time to pay however, there was a dispute over the charges. Sapp apparently felt that the women were asking for too much money, and both parties began to yell at each other. Police were called to the hotel, where they ascertained that the fight was taking place over the money owed to the two women for sexual acts performed in the hotel room.
Police were only able to determine that Sapp had engaged in physical contact with one of the women, who was arrested on prostitution charges along with Sapp. The other woman was let go given a lack of evidence.
Warren Sapp will be returning to Phoenix on February 23rd when he will appear in court to face his charges.
