Analyst Greg Anthony suspended after solicitation charge

Greg Anthony Suspended After Arrest for Soliciting a Prostitute



WASHINGTON (AP) - Basketball analyst and former NBA player Greg Anthony was suspended indefinitely by CBS on Saturday after he was arrested on a charge of soliciting a prostitute in a Washington, D.C., hotel room.

"Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season," A CBS spokeswoman said Saturday. Turner Sports also suspended the TV commentator and said it "will have no further comment."

Anthony, 47, issued a statement Saturday apologizing to his wife, family and colleagues.

"I made a mistake," he said. "With this lapse of judgment, I embarrassed many, including myself. I will work to regain the trust that I have lost, and the first step is saying that I am sorry."

Anthony was arrested on a charge of soliciting a prostitute inside a room at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in downtown Washington just before 6 p.m. Friday, according to a Metropolitan Police Department report obtained by The Associated Press.

The report also said that Anthony was suspected of using a computer as part of the crime, and that his arrest was part of an undercover operation targeting prostitution.

The hotel is less than a mile from the White House.

Metropolitan Police Lt. Kelvin Cusick said Anthony was released from custody Friday evening. Police say he could face up to 90 days in jail if convicted.

Anthony had been scheduled to announce the Michigan State-Maryland men's basketball game Saturday in nearby College Park, Maryland.

In the NBA, Anthony played 11 seasons with six teams from 1991-92 to 2001-02, including the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers. The guard and defensive specialist averaged 7.3 points per game.

In college he was on the UNLV team that won the 1990 NCAA tournament, with teammates Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon.
