Denver Broncos Ryan Murphy Sent Home After Getting Caught Up In A Prostitution Sting
Ryan Murphy‘s Super Bowl dreams ended on Tuesday evening after he got caught up in a prostitution sting and the Denver Broncos sent him home.
Denver Broncos rookie safety Ryan Murphy and his brother were detained and questioned Tuesday as part of a prostitution sting in San Jose, California.
Murphy eventually was released and was not charged in the incident. The Broncos have sent Murphy home.
“Although practice squad safety Ryan Murphy was not cited by police, we decided it was best for the team if we continued our preparations for Super Bowl 50 without him,” Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said in a statement. “Ryan is returning to Denver but his status as a practice squad player has not changed at this time.”
The San Jose Mercury News reported that the sting involved Murphy’s brother and was conducted by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Police. The paper, citing sources, said the pair was questioned by sheriff’s deputies Tuesday evening at a Motel 6 in north San Jose.
Murphy’s brother, according to multiple reports, was cited for solicitation.
A spokesman for the Santa Clara County Sheriff would not comment on the citation, but told the newspaper that the county’s human-trafficking task force had been conducting recent stings in the area and had cited 10 men for solicitation.
Sources told KPIX-TV that police detained a suspected prostitute near the motel in north San Jose. She told the police she needed to go to a car to retrieve some property. Murphy and his brother were waiting in the car.
