Just over a week ago, CBS analyst Greg Anthony was arrested for soliciting a prostitute in Washington, D.C., and was promptly suspended by CBS. At the time of the initial report, not too many details were given, but now that they are out we can all enjoy them together.
According to court documents, the D.C. police had received complaints of prostitution activity, and the Human Trafficking Unit set up an undercover operation to trap the culprits. The HTU posted an ad on a website that has its very own escort section — apparently Greg Anthony frequents the site because he quickly called to set up a date with an undercover officer. When they met in person, the officer offered Anthony “straight intercourse or blowjob” for 80 bucks, and naturally Anthony accepted. The officer then asked if Anthony wanted her to dress up, to which he replied with a big, fat “oh yeah” before getting arrested.

What can I say? Greg Anthony was looking to get some and fell into a trap hook, line, and sinker. It’s also a bit ridiculous that a famous, wealthy guy like Anthony has such cheap tastes, but hey, whatever floats his boat. It’s unfortunate that he was willing to jeopardize his career for an $80 chick, but honestly, Charles Barkley basically got caught doing the same thing and he has recovered quite nicely.
