PHOENIX (AP) — The NFL Network says it has terminated its contract with former NFL lineman and Hall of Famer Warren Sapp, who was arrested today on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute and allegedly assaulting two women.
Police in Phoenix say Sapp was taken into custody today at a downtown Phoenix hotel and booked into jail. He made his initial appearance before a Phoenix Municipal Court judge and was released pending a Feb. 23 court date. He could face a maximum penalty of $2,500 in fines, six months in jail, three years’ probation and mandatory 15 days in jail if convicted on the prostitution charge.
