Former Bucs, Bengals and Broncos linebacker Nate Webster was arrested in Cincinnati on Thursday and has been indicted on charges of sexual battery, gross sexual imposition and five counts of unlawful sex with a minor.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Webster, who has seven children with four women, hired a 15-year-old girl as a babysitter and then initiated a sexual relationship with her, using guns to intimidate her into keeping quiet.
“It’s a disgusting thing to live under the threat of this,” Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said. “This conduct occurred dozens of times. . . . In his car, his home, a park nearby.”
Prosecutors say Webster told the girl he would kill her and her family if she revealed the sexual relationship. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office served search warrants on Webster’s home on Thursday and found four guns and a small amount of marijuana.
Webster played in Tampa Bay from 2000 to 2003, in Cincinnatti in 2004 and 2005 and in Denver from 2006 to 2008.
