Fresh off of signing a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Cleveland Browns, Quentin Groves has been arrested for attempting to solicit the services of a prostitute, according to ClevScene.com.

The Orange and Beachwood police, along with the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Department, had organized a sting that nabbed Groves and 14 other men during a three-day operation.

On April 17, according to the police report, Groves arrived at Room 231 of the Homestead Guest Studios. He had responded to an ad and requested “full service” from an officer posing as a prostitute offering sex for hire, according to records. A price was agreed upon during the call before he arrived.

His court date is May 10.

$195.70 and a box of Magnum condoms were seized as evidence.

Hey, at least he was going to be safe about it, right?

  • Who cares?
  • No way!! a player solicited a prostitute! This has to be a first
  • If she wasn't underage who cares. There's no difference between giving her a $50 or spending $50 on a dinner and drinks for her.
  • I really am sick of these FEMALE COPS posing as prositutes just to catch guys wanting sex. If they weren't offering it, this so called crime wouldn't happen. This is what our tax money pays for? There should only be female cops for stand-by on the the arrest of another female. There are certain thing in this world that just don't make sense, and FEMALE COPS are near the top of the list. The ones that patrol are useless, because even if they stop a 92 year old Grandma, there has to be back-up called. It's just a very stupid thing in this country.
  • Awwwww, that's too bad - don't solicit prostitutes (which are illegal) and you won't get arrested. Call 1-800-WAAA to talk to someone who cares....
  • I read and re-read this article and please tell me WHERE it says that the prostitute was female? The article was so gender neutral I would bet it was a guy.
  • Again, he's a big boy. Leave him alone and let him get the monkey spanked. Who cares.
  • The man is worth millions and all he was going to pay was $195. She must have been dog butt ugly.

    Hell my ex wife is worth more than $195.

  • Maybe she didn't think you were worth it.
  • I am sick of hearing about prostitution stings. Police budgets bulging at the seams why is so much money being spent on victimless crimes? There is plenty of real crimes to go around.
  • Kind of a waste of time for law enforcement.
  • How stupid. What an inane exercise for the police to spend their time and taxpayer's money on. Shameful government exercise.
  • I believe the officer should be arrested for offering her services.The cops should be guarding our borders if they wanna do something beneficial to us all.
  • It was all a calculated marketing ploy. The minimal pennance he will pay is money well spent. "Magnum condoms";His stock with the concubines just went through the roof!
  • how do we know he "was going to be safe about it"? did they catch him wearing the birth control device? hmm? nice signing browns lol and loluck. "here we go brownies, here we go...here we go brownies..."
  • It was the hair,if it wasnt from india the cop wouldnt have been pissed that his hair looked better than hers!!
    I face this dilemma all the time ...I,ll bet it was a black female cop who get gotten her weave wet!!!!She was allegedly on her way to get her hair did! Somethings rotten on the ho stroll!!!
  • The guy wasn't paying for sex! He could get sex whenever he wants to. He was paying for her to leave after!
  • This is ridiculous. Police budgets in most jurisdictions have been slashed. They no longer have the resources to effectively deal with violent crime much less dealing with this nonsense. If government were intelligent, they would find ways to generate much needed tax revenue by legalizing prostitution.This way it can be regulated.This makes infinitely more sense than to prosecute and embarass private citizens
  • That's because you don't know what you're talking about! In Las Vegas alone there are over 200,000 prostitutes diagnosed with HIV...so I don't know about you, but if stings like these aren't in the best interest of the public, then I don't know what is.
  • BrianP69,
    You are an ignorant idiot who doesn't know his facts and has a hugely flawed argument. Vegas only has 300 confirmed HIV infected prostitutes (not alot compared to other large cities) How can you argue that legalizing it would increase HIV rates when the girls are required to go into a Drs office for an HIV test every month in the state of NV. Regulating it would increase safety and also reduce the undesirable elements ( pimps, human traffickers,etc).
