(Gossip-Grind News) Warren Sapp Arrested For Allegedly Soliciting Prostitute:
NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp was arrested earlier today for allegedly soliciting a prostitute and assault. Sapp was arrested around 7AM and taken into custody at a hotel in Downtown Phoenix. Sapp was in Phoenix covering the Super Bowl for the NFL Network.
Phoenix police say Sapp, 42, was taken into custody Monday morning at a downtown hotel and booked into jail.
Sapp was a broadcaster with the NFL Network and was in Arizona for Sunday’s Super Bowl but has been fired, the network said Monday.
“Warren Sapp’s contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network,” spokesman Alex Riethmiller said in a statement released by the channel.
Sapp played for Tampa Bay and Oakland and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013.
Police were called to the hotel about 2:30 a.m. Monday. A woman told officers that she and another woman were working as escorts and an argument over money in a guest’s room turned physical.

Cops say two women told police they were at the hotel “as escorts” and went to Sapp’s room, where an argument broke out over money.
The women claim the argument turned physical and spilled out into the hallway.
Cops say the women had injuries consistent with a struggle.
Officials say when cops questioned Sapp,”he was questioned and admitted involvement in the act of prostitution, but denied assaulting the females.”
Both women involved in the incident received citations from police — one for prostitution, the other for a violation of the City’s escort permit requirements. Both women were released. (TMZ)
Sapp has been released from jail without bail, and will be allowed to leave Arizona and go back home to Florida after a judge decided he’s not a flight risk. Sapp is due back in court on February 23.
