Quentin Groves arrested for solicitation

Marshawn Lynch, Quentin Groves AP

It didn’t take Browns linebacker Quentin Groves long to get in trouble in his new town.

Groves, who signed with the Browns as a free agent earlier this offseason, was arrested for solicitation. According to a report in Cleveland Scene magazine that has been confirmed by Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Groves was arrested at a hotel after responding to an ad from a prostitute promising “full service” that turned out to be a sting run by police in the towns of Beechwood and Orange along with the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department.

Groves allegedly agreed to a price for sex acts on a call before arriving at the hotel — one hour of time for $100 with an additional $20 for a particular sex act – and became one of 14 men arrested as part of the operation. The report also states that $195.70 and a box of Magnum condoms were seized as evidence in the arrest, which took place while the Browns were holding a minicamp last week. Groves was not absent for any of that minicamp.

Groves, who signed a two-year deal with the Browns, is due in court on May 10. Neither the Browns nor Groves’ agent responded to requests for comment.

    What a dumb sh1t lol

    I still have no idea why this is illegal. He should have known it was a scam though. $100 seems really cheap. Then again, it is Cleveland.

    HA HA HA HA

    Just awesome.

  4. therealpittbull says: Apr 24, 2013 12:00 PM

    Not everything has to be reported. It’s an embarrassment to the media, not Groves if you ask me. Not saying he’s right, but there is much going on in the world that should he reported.

    I beleive they were using the Flying J rest stops for a meeting place.

  6. duster1982 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:03 PM

    These are the same guys who won’t shell out $50 for a cab ride when drunk, but $100 hooker? No problem!!

  7. mazblast says: Apr 24, 2013 12:03 PM

    McClain gets arrested for disorderly conduct, a Lion gets a DUI, this guy gets arrested for solicitation–and STILL the arrest clock doesn’t reset to zero?

  8. crownofthehelmet says: Apr 24, 2013 12:04 PM

    Dude must be a real uggo – makes more than 99% of the populous, and he has to pay for sex.

    And morganstan is baffled, he’s gotta pay a buck fifty, and he has to perform acts for the prostitute.

  9. therealraider says: Apr 24, 2013 12:05 PM

    Why is it illegal to sell something that is perfectly ok to give away for free?

  10. noahbird says: Apr 24, 2013 12:05 PM

    Between town cops setting people up and the FBI setting people up…

  11. bucnbutfan says: Apr 24, 2013 12:06 PM

    With the salary that an NFL player makes, and all this guy wants to pay is $100?

    C’mon dude, pony up some more cash for something special and a little more upscale.

  12. commonsensedude says: Apr 24, 2013 12:07 PM

    I can imagine the excuses he gave to his team after getting busted for solicitation … “I told you I was trying to become the next Lawrence Taylor!!”

  13. jaimelh02 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:07 PM

    Her needs to be arrested for carrying a firearm. Cuffs the boy was packing some heat Haha

  14. melkipershero says: Apr 24, 2013 12:08 PM

    Its illegal because the government cant tax it pretty much. If they cant make money off something it is illegal.

  15. britishteeth says: Apr 24, 2013 12:12 PM

    Poor Guy. I bet all Cleveland hookers look like Drew Carey. At least the….wait for it…..PRICE IS RIGHT! Thank you, I’ll be here all night.

    damn how embarrassing

  18. shaggytoodle says: Apr 24, 2013 12:15 PM

    Having girl problems, I feel bad for ya son, got 99 problems…

  19. kungfubowler says: Apr 24, 2013 12:16 PM

    Next time, Quentin, just take matters into your own hands.

  20. 27xplayoffs says: Apr 24, 2013 12:18 PM

    Quentin, next time walk into a bar and announce that you are an NFL player. Problem solved.

  21. dredddog says: Apr 24, 2013 12:18 PM

    From what I read on Twitter this guy was all about family and god.

  22. hdf21 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:19 PM

    Who cares. Look at Cleveland and tell me these cops dont have anything better to do.

  23. mrgroovesd says: Apr 24, 2013 12:20 PM

    You must not be ugly if you can’t atleast find some groupies to do the dirty with. I know there has to be some thirsty females in Cleveland that would do the dirty with him.

  24. patriotinvasion says: Apr 24, 2013 12:23 PM

    Hey, at least the police report said “Magnum” condoms. He’ll have to take the arrest, but the word gets out to the ladies what he’s working with. #blessingindisguise

  25. peytonsneck18 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:23 PM

    at least he didnt have any small boy durex ones, lol aint nothing like some cheap “strange”

  26. justsomerandomguy24 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:25 PM

    Only $100 ?!?!?? Really? You have that kind of money and you are skimping on your hookers… Seems like a good way to catch something…

  27. jwil007 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:26 PM

    How do NFL players pay for P??? I mean I’m an avg Joe tax paying hard working Corp American and I don’t pay for it… I use the old fashion game to execute! WTF is up with this?? Dude open your mouth to a honey in the club at the lounge or waiting at the back of the player exits and get you some…. Like my man up top said “I got 99 problems but a B is 1″ LOL

  28. djcologne says: Apr 24, 2013 12:26 PM

    So stoopid to fall for that but then again Groves’s read & react skills have never been too sharp….

  29. jstreet1985 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:26 PM

    And suddenly I have less shame in the ravens signing rolando mcshame!

  30. johnelwayishorsefaced says: Apr 24, 2013 12:26 PM

    The difference is that since he’s not a Lion you guys aren’t going to rub it in nearly as much, there probably won’t be a follow up article about the Browns “dusting off the same old statement” and there won’t be nearly as many juvenile comments from haters.

  31. pmars64 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:27 PM

    So what? If that’s the worst this guy does, he’s already better than many of those cops who were part of the sting. Don’t those idiots have something better to do than to nab some schmuck who wants another hand or mouth to do what he usually does alone?

  32. donmcg2012 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:27 PM

    Going to be another long year for us Browns fans. Question is will we have more news stories regarding illegal issues than we will have wins?

  33. juliusanonymous says: Apr 24, 2013 12:28 PM

    I hate “sting” operations. It’s called entrapment. I’m not even sure how cops get away with that crap, other than the fact that we are increasingly living in an Orwellian police state.

  34. kevingreene160sacknoHOFclub says: Apr 24, 2013 12:28 PM

    I love how it is mentioned that police recovered a box of Magnum Condoms, as if we all don’t assume.

  35. mightbegoingtohellforthis says: Apr 24, 2013 12:28 PM

    Was Chris Hansen involved in the sting ? If not then I don’t care because it was an agreement between two consenting adults.

  36. kabmaforlife says: Apr 24, 2013 12:28 PM

    He should have hit up the strip clubs and took one of the strippers home…or better yet made arrangements with management to rent a VIP room for an hour. Use your head…the other one I mean!

  37. carlsbadboltfan says: Apr 24, 2013 12:29 PM

    I’ll wager this isn’t the first time he’s dialed up for action.

  38. cliverush says: Apr 24, 2013 12:29 PM

    The guy should have gone to a veteran on the team and asked him where the jock groupies hang out. Every city has bars that young ladies hook up with the local pros.

  39. nineroutsider says: Apr 24, 2013 12:31 PM

    They’ll never discuss pricing with you, it’s all in the ad…oh wait, I mean what a despicable act by Quentin Groves.

    Dude must be really shy about his little friend below because I’ve hung around some ballplayers and I’ve seen how they got it up close and personal. They’re knee deep in it…even Skeletor Otis Nixon had no trouble…

  40. tjjohnson98 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:33 PM

    “Um, sir? If I give you this $195.70 I have on me, can you at least make sure the police report says they were Magnum condoms?”

  41. strctlylo says: Apr 24, 2013 12:34 PM

    that’s what he gets for not getting a ‘reviewed’ girl. gotta get up on ter dude.

  42. eatitfanboy says: Apr 24, 2013 12:38 PM

    Can anyone give me one logical reason that prostitution is illegal but paying people to have sex on camera isn’t?

    Or maybe he would rather pay a professional than sleep with a bunch of stanky groupies who are just trying to trap him into getting them pregnant.

  44. rshear30 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:41 PM

    Let me translate…. Jets – we want Tavon Austin so we will act like we want Nassib.

  45. Stiller43 says: Apr 24, 2013 12:42 PM

    “one hour of time for $100 with an additional $20 for a particular sex act”

    Dude you make millions and you cant afford a hooker without crabs?

  46. illiniftw says: Apr 24, 2013 12:46 PM

    He must have wanted to do something freaky to risk it with a hooker. If the whole hour was $100 that extra $20 had to be something good! Maybe he wanted to try one of those steamers that Cleveland is so famous for

  47. joetoronto says: Apr 24, 2013 12:47 PM

    Wow, a man can’t even rent a hooker anymore without getting busted.

    Strange times indeed, SMH.

  48. teambringitstrong says: Apr 24, 2013 12:55 PM

    Half a damn mil, that’s what the whip cost me!! One hunnid dollaz, that’s what the p**sy cost me!!

    Our tax dollars hard at work. So i guess the next time i loan my GF money i might as well turn my self in.

  50. officialgame says: Apr 24, 2013 1:01 PM

    I’m OK with it as long as it wasn’t T’eo knocking on his hotel door.

    _____________________________
    Sad thing is the $50 ride saves your life and others’ lives, the $100 ride might cost you your life!

    Also, this is NOT in Cleveland, these two suburbs are nice suburbs that happen to have 2 streets with rows of hotels on them. And it’s BEACHwood, not BEECHwood.

    And everyone knows you pay hookers to leave, not to give it up to you. I completely get why a player would much prefer that over bedding a groupie. I bet if Roethlisberger had to do it over again, he’d hire it, not go for the groupies.

  53. swagjag says: Apr 24, 2013 1:23 PM

    Charges for impersonating a football player are pending.

  54. macfunden says: Apr 24, 2013 1:27 PM

    I used to wonder why these guys use hookers because they can get groupies etc for free. Then I realized that they don’t want to deal with the “courting”, going out to bars, Conversation, etc. They want it, its a business transaction, and she’s gone. No feelings, phone calls, blah blah blah. Each goes about their business and their needs were met.
    Except for when you get arrested.

  55. onereasonableman says: Apr 24, 2013 1:53 PM

    You gotta give it to the police though for being accurate in their add. They said he’d get “full service” and man did he get screwed!

  56. EJ says: Apr 24, 2013 2:02 PM

    I’ll never understand why prostitution is illegal, but Its ok to pick up a girl from a bar, do the deed and pay for her cab ride home? Isn’t it basically the same? In both situations you are paying for the girl to leave, not to stay. In both instances you might not even know her name… Neither situation do you plan on seeing that same girl again, not ever. So why is one legal and the other not? Could it be that the state wants to make a few extra bucks in fines? If the state or city didn’t make a buck from busting and fining these Johns, then it would be legal.

    As for Groves, stupid move brother. Your a player in the NFL, you should be able to land just about any girl you please.

    Exactly. It’s just like Charlie Sheen said- “I don’t pay them to have sex with me, I pay them to leave”.

  59. bigmeechy74 says: Apr 24, 2013 2:43 PM

    It’s a good thing the police are using resources to stop guys from having sex. Who cares about rapists and murderers and thieves? Let’s try to stop consenting adults from sex! Prioritize!

  60. ilovefoolsball says: Apr 24, 2013 2:51 PM

    Dude you’re a millionaire. Women will have sex with you for free.

    Must not be illegal in Oakland. He was a beast over there a couple of years ago and was never a problem or at least did not get in any trouble for maybe doing the same thing.

    Hand picked by Ray Horton no doubt. Good choice. :-)

    Pinhead.

    I still respect the Cleveland more than Green Bay.

  68. rodericksilva says: Apr 24, 2013 5:46 PM

    In defense of the police department most prostitution stings are a result of the community complaints and demands. You guys are right there are other crimes to worry about but sometimes you have to put on the “show” for the community.

  69. msstiller58 says: Apr 25, 2013 12:46 AM

    It’s the Browns. Poor guy can’t score even if he pays for it.

  71. axespray says: Apr 25, 2013 3:19 PM

    Football player – magnum condoms – close to being a millionaire ….

    just go star in Rex Ryan pornos or be an extra in game of thrones.
