Found February 25, 2013 on Deuce of Davenport:
Hill-Murray School football coach Mark Mauer was busted in a prostitution sting last week. He’s also the cousin of the Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer. The best part about this story is his excuse after getting arrested. According to the police report, Mauer arrived at the hotel about 7:30 p.m. and met with a female undercover officer. Mauer verbally agreed to pay the woman $100 for a half-hour of “full service,” the report said. Mauer then told the woman he left his money in the car and had to go get it, police said. He was arrested when he left the room. When questioned, Mauer reportedly told police he was just “messing around” and didn’t intend to return to the room. According to the report, Mauer said “he has done this a couple times in the past, where he calls women and then leaves without doing anything.” Police said he had with him $100 and a bottle of unmarked pills that Mauer said were Viagra, a prescription drug used to treat impotence. That excuse is almost as good as Andray Blatche’s “She was not dressed like a prostitute” and they were just “playing around”. Mauer’s attempt gets three Baltches. Good effort.
