WASHINGTON (AP) — District of Columbia police say CBS basketball analyst and former NBA player Greg Anthony has been arrested and charged with soliciting a prostitute.

Lt. Kelvin Cusick tells The Associated Press that Anthony was arrested at 5:46 p.m. on Friday. He said Saturday that Anthony faces a misdemeanor solicitation charge that’s punishable by up to 180 days in jail.

Cusick says the 47-year-old Anthony was released Friday evening. No further details were available.

According to the NCAA website, Anthony was scheduled to announce the Michigan State-Maryland men’s basketball game Saturday in nearby College Park, Maryland.

The guard played 11 seasons, with six teams, from 1991-92 to 2001-02, including the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers.

He averaged 7.3 points per game over his career.
