It seems like the NFL just cannot stay out of the limelight and it’s rarely anything but positive.
Early Monday morning, after Super Bowl weekend, former NFL player Warren Sapp was arrested after reportedly soliciting a prostitute and assault in Arizona, according to Love B. Scott.
The former defensive tackle and personality for the NFL was caught and arrested at 7:00 am after law enforcement were contacted by a female who said that she had been assaulted after an argument with Sapp.
According to law enforcement, police officers were contacted at around 2:30 a.m. by a female at a Phoenix hotel who alleged she had been assaulted when an argument about money turned physical. Police detained Sapp and questioned him, and during his interview he admitted his involvement in the act of prostitution. He denied assaulting any females at the scene. He was later transported to the Maricopa County Jail and booked on charges of soliciting prostitution and two counts of assault.
After the NFL got word of Sapp’s arrest, they quickly fired him from The NFL Network (NFL.com).
Alex Riethmiller, VP of Communications at the NFL Networks released this statement:
Warren Sapp’s contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network.
I don’t understand why people make such dumb a** decisions.
