LB Groves nabbed in prostitution sting

The SportsXchange

Cleveland Browns outside linebacker Quentin Groves, who signed a two-year deal as a free agent in March, was arrested for solicitation of a prostitute in a three-day sting in Ohio.

Groves allegedly responded to a sex-for-hire ad and agreed to payment before arriving at Homestead Guest Studios in Beachwood, Ohio. The police report indicates that Groves requested "full service" from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute but was met by multiple officers when he reached the predetermined room.

Groves was reportedly in possession of $195.70 and a box of condoms, seized as evidence, at the time of his arrest last week. He was ordered to appear in Bedford Municipal Court on May 10.

At least 14 others were arrested in the three-day sting, according to Cleveland Scene.

Groves signed a two-year, $2.8 million contract as an unrestricted free agent in March. He played for the Arizona Cardinals last season. The former 2008 second-round pick drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars has also played for the Oakland Raiders.
