How OSU’s defensive tackle was taken down by vice, suspended from bowl game
More details are coming out about this week’s solicitation bust involving Ohio State football player Adolphus Washington.
Washington reportedly answered an ad posted on the website backpage.com and agreed to meet a woman at an Extended Stay hotel near the Crosswoods Shopping Center. At the hotel, the Buckeye player offered the woman $100 for…ahem…sexual services. At that point, he discovered that the whole thing was an undercover sting operation set up by the vice squad and he was busted.
Update: Head Coach Urban Meyer says that Washington has been suspended from the Fiesta Bowl.

Ohio State defensive tackle Adolphus Washington was cited Wednesday night by Columbus Police on a misdemeanor charge of solicitation. The vice squad busted Washington near the Crosswoods Shopping Center just north of Worthington.
Ohio State confirms the report and says that discipline for Washington “will be handled internally.”
Late Thursday, Washington issued this apology:
I want to sincerely apologize to my family, to coach Meyer and the coaching staff, to my teammates and my friends for my lack of judgement last night and for my actions that I truly regret. I have wanted to be a high-character teammate, a contributor to the success of this program and, most importantly, someone my family can be proud of. I am extremely disappointed in myself, and I can honestly say I will learn from my mistake and I will accept the consequences that deservedly will come my way. And I hope that people will know that I am truly sorry and that I sincerely do apologize.
The Buckeye star is due to appear in court next week.
