Warren Sapp was arrested after police say he solicited and assaulted at least one prostitute early Monday morning at a hotel in downtown Phoenix, where he had been covering the Super Bowl for the NFL Network hours earlier.
The former All-Pro defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders had begun arguing over money with two women in a hotel room, and the argument soon spilled into the hallway and turned physical, police said.
Sapp admitted to having hired a prostitute but denied assaulting the women, police said. Both women had minor injuries that appeared to have resulted from a struggle, according to investigators.
Sapp was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution and two counts of assault.
