Here are the details.
Sources reported early Tuesday evening that Denver Broncos rookie safety and onetime Oakland resident Ryan Murphy was involved by San Jose police in a prostitution sting.
The sting was part of Santa Clara County’s multi-agency human trafficking task force. Authorities were targeting an area of north San Jose known for prostitution.
According to sources, police detained a suspected prostitute in the area of a Motel 6 at North First Street and Brokaw. The woman told task force members that she had to go to a car to retrieve some property.
Murphy was inside that car along with his brother. Sources said Murphy was questioned and released by police. However, his brother and the suspected prostitute were cited.
Not a quite a Eugene Robinson situation and Murphy isn’t any player of significance for the Broncos, to the point there is NO photo of him even in a Broncos uniform. But, with that being said it is a distraction because people are going to ask about it.
Stay off the backpage with your brother getting hookers.
It looks like his brother was the fall guy.
The Broncos are sending him home.
