WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Former NFL player Warren Sapp’s contract with the NFL Network has been terminated, according to Sports Illustrated media reporter Richard Deitsch.
The 42-year-old Hall of Famer was reportedly arrested in Phoenix, where he was covering the Super Bowl as an NFL Network analyst, in the early morning hours on Monday, on the charge of solicitation of a prostitute and two counts of assault, according to Phoenix-based ABC 15.
More on the arrest from ABC 15:
Police said Sapp met two women in the lobby of the hotel before they went back up to his hotel room. They started discussing money, a physical altercation occurred and the argument spilled into the hallway around 2:30 a.m.
Immediately following his arrest, Sapp had been suspended indefinitely without pay by NFL Network, according to Deitsch.
Deitsch first broke the news during a Monday afternoon radio appearance on 106.7 The Fan’s “Chad Dukes Versus The World.”
