Richard Deitsch of  Sports Illustrated is reporting that former NFL player and NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, 42,  has been arrested for soliciting prostitution in Phoenix, just one day after Super Bowl XLIX. The news of the arrest was first reported by TMZ and ABC 15 in Phoenix. Deitsch writes:

“Sapp has been an analyst with the network since 2008. Upon contact from SI this afternoon, an NFL Network spokesperson initially offered, ‘Warren Sapp has been suspended indefinitely without pay from NFL Network pending the outcome of ongoing police investigation.’ The spokesperson later confirmed to SI that Sapp no longer worked for the network.”

Sapp was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2013. His arrest is on the heels of the arrest of former basketball player and CBS/Turner television analyst Greg Anthony, who was arrested Jan. 16 in Washington. Anthony was also terminated indefinitely.
