Analyst Greg Anthony suspended after solicitation charge

WASHINGTON (AP) — Greg Anthony has been suspended indefinitely by CBS following his arrest on solicitation charges in Washington, D.C.

A CBS spokeswoman says “Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season.”

A police report shows that the CBS basketball analyst and former NBA player was arrested inside a room at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in downtown Washington just before 6 p.m. Friday. He’s charged with soliciting a prostitute.

The police report says the 47-year-old Anthony is suspected of using a computer as part of the crime.

Lt. Kelvin Cusick says Anthony was released 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.
