Hall of Fame defensive tackle and NFL Network media analyst Warren Sapp was arrested Monday morning for allegedly soliciting a prostitute in the hours following the Super Bowl in Arizona.
The report comes to us via the gossip rag TMZ.
Warren Sapp was arrested in Phoenix this morning for soliciting a prostitute around 7AM … TMZ Sports has learned. Sapp was also arrested for assault. We’re told Sapp was taken into custody at a hotel in Downtown Phoenix.
Considering this is late-breaking news, there isn’t a whole bunch more to add to it.
Sapp was on hand in Glendale for the NFL Network’s coverage of the Super Bowl. He has also had a previous run-in with the law, which stemmed from a domestic battery claim back in 2010. Those charges were eventually dropped.
Known as an enigmatic media personality, Sapp’s post-NFL career has been nearly as successful as his playing days. However, this latest incident could have wide-ranging ramifications on his future with NFL Media.
We will update this story as more becomes available.
