Cleveland Browns linebacker Quentin Groves has apologized following his citation on a soliciting charge stemming from what police called a prostitution sting.
Groves said in a statement Wednesday that he let a lot of people down, starting with his family, and he told fans, the Browns and the city of Cleveland he was sorry for putting himself in this situation.
Groves entered a no contest plea to disorderly conduct in Bedford Municipal Court in suburban Cleveland on Tuesday following his citation by police in neighboring Orange last Wednesday.
Court records show Groves also paid $365 as part of the case. The Browns declined comment.
Police say Groves was taken into custody at a hotel after arranging in a phone call for sex acts with an undercover officer.
