ORANGE VILLAGE, Ohio – A newly-signed Cleveland Browns linebacker has apologized after he was arrested for soliciting prostitution, according to a report on Fox8.com.

Quentin Groves, 29, was arrested on April 17 during a prostitution sting at a Cleveland-area hotel. Police said Groves called what he thought was an escort service — it was actually a female police officer on the line.

“I want to apologize to the Browns organization, our fans and the city of Cleveland for putting myself in this situation. I realize I let a lot of people down, most importantly my family. I am committed to learning from this and moving forward,” Groves said in a statement.

Police arrested Groves when he showed up at the hotel. Officers confiscated $195 in cash and a box of condoms, Fox8.com. reported.

Groves is due back in court May 10.
