New Browns linebacker Quentin Groves was arrested last week on charges of solicitation after being caught in a sting run by the Orange and Beachwood police along with the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department, Scene has learned.

On April 17, according to the police report, Groves arrived at Room 231 of the Homestead Guest Studios. He had responded to an ad and requested "full service" from an officer posing as a prostitute offering sex for hire, according to records. A price was agreed upon during the call before he arrived.

From the police report: "He agreed to one hour of time for 100.00 and was told that anal would be an additional 20.00."

His court date is May 10.

$195.70 and a box of Magnum condoms were seized as evidence.

The Browns had just signed Groves to a two-year, $2.8 million contract in March.

A call to the team for comment has not yet been returned.

14 other men were arrested in the three-day operation.
