Details have emerged regarding the arrest of NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp on Monday morning in Phoenix on charges of solicitation and assault.

William Pitts of NBC 12 in Phoenix reports that the Phoenix police say they were called to Sapp’s room at a hotel when a woman reported an assault. There were two women in the hotel room and there was an argument going on over money.

“While there [Sapp] was questioned and admitted involvement in the act of prostitution, but denied assaulting the females,” police said.

TMZ reports both women received citations — one for prostitution, the other for a violation of the City’s escort permit requirements — and were released. They also reportedly received injuries “consistent with a struggle.”

Sapp has been suspended indefinitely from his job at NFL Network.
