Pittsburgh Steeler Arrested on Vice Charges

Another target of Metro vice detectives was arrested today in Pittsburgh. It's an I-Team exclusive involving a professional athlete from Las Vegas.

The suspects name is Richard Seigler. He's a professional football player who, until Thursday morning, was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, he's charged with running a prostitution operation on the streets of Las Vegas.

...

However, on the same day that Seigler was arrested in Pittsburgh on a warrant out of Las Vegas, the Steelers announced he was cut from the team's practice squad.

Seigler, wearing number 51 in the file photo from the Las Vegas Bowl a few years ago, became a suspect as Metro vice officers probed a juvenile prostitution case. They found out that Seigler allegedly tried to entice a girl to work as one of his hookers, and then learned that he has other women working for him as escorts in Las Vegas.

The Steelers did a good thing.


"................became a suspect as Metro vice officers probed a juvenile prostitution case..........."


This guy needs to be put away for a long time.

I dunno, but perhaps his biggest mistake wasn't conforming to local licensing laws in Nevada ? But then there's also the matter about a juvy ?
Otherwise routine entrepreneurial activity in Vegas, right ?

I just don't get that... Isn't the league minimum (for rookies - no less) $225,000.00??.... I'm sorry, but I think I could get by with that, and not have to subject myself to multiple felony counts to make ends-meet..

I don't know. It would be a stretch. But, I'd have to try and make it. Maybe cut down on going to movies or something.
