    http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?se...cal&id=9028916

    WAKE FOREST, N.C. (WTVD) -- A former winner of the World Series of Poker was arrested in a male prostitution sting at a Wake Forest hotel earlier this week, according to police.

    A Wake Forest Police Department spokesperson said Gregory Paul Raymer, 48, was one of six men who responded to an advertisement posted by undercover police on a website often used by prostitutes.

    Raymer nicknamed "Fossilman," is best known for winning the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event.

    Bond for the men was set at $1000.


    I'm speechless.

    Between this and the FairPlay fail, tough year for Raymer.

    A great use of law enforcement funds, BTW... unless it's a "To Catch a Predator" type thing it's such a waste of resources.

    Yeah it made zero sense to me until I realized it was in North Carolina.

    When they say male prostitution ring, does that mean he was soliciting male prostitutes, or that a group of men were soliciting prostitutes?

    Are they saying Greg was looking for male companionship? Judging from his picture I'm sure he'd be happy with a trip to the zoo.

    Im guessing he couldnt do it in Vegas because he was worried about being recognized/blackmailed or something. Fucking GG, nh.

    Sting, not ring.

    Vegas, from what I hear, is a pretty sketchy place for that kind of stuff. Upselling, rollings, and the stuff you mentioned are factors as well.

    States like the Carolinas, which is basically run under Christian Evangelical law, are probably the WORST places to get caught doing this crap.

    Sounds like he was looking to make a new male friend.

    It's a sting.

    Here in MA, it is common for undercover cops to go on backpage.com (basically replaced craigslist for prostitution after it banned it after the "Craigslist Killer" case), post ads as whores, and then set up johns like they are literally cockroaches in a cupboard.

    It's America.....if a guy can't pay to get his dick sucked by another dude, then the terrorists have won.

    Wake Forest, N.C. — Wake Forest police arrested six men Wednesday during an undercover prostitution sting at a local hotel, including a world poker champion and a former attorney for Duke University lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum.

    The men responded to an advertisement on a website often used by prostitutes, police said.

    Each man was charged with prostitution and attempted crimes against nature and received a $1,000 secured bond. Their first court appearances will be April 18:

    Kevin Scott Konarzewski, 425 Barnhill Lane, Wake Forest – president of Complete Inventory Services
    Barrett Lee Bennett, 4800 University Drive, Apt. 9C, Durham
    Christopher Burell Shella, 2305 Vintage Hill Drive, Durham – managing director of Shella, Harris & Aus P.C. and former attorney for Mangum
    Gregory Paul Raymer, 2622 Village Manor Way, Raleigh – professional poker player, best known for winning the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event
    Robert Hancock, 9828 San Remo Place, Wake Forest – vice president of sales and marketing at MobileS**** (NOTE from Druff: I was informed by a MobileS**** employee that Robert Hancock does not work there, and actually works for Smart Online. I have not verified this either way.)
    Gerald Barham, 7941 Bud Morris Road, Wake Forest

    Police said they conducted the operation "as a pre-emptive measure to combat the nationwide growing trend of prostitution."

    “The locations prostitutes choose for this type of criminal activity vary and seldom remain the same for more than a couple of days at a time, which makes enforcement difficult,” Police Chief Jeffrey Leonard said in a statement.

    “In this instance, we conducted the operation at a local hotel with its full cooperation," Leonard added, without identifying the hotel. "We are not aware of this type of criminal activity ever occurring at the hotel. Our officers selected the hotel for the undercover operation at random."

    Leonard stressed that no hotel guests were at risk during the operation and no prostitutes were on the hotel premises.

    So greasy, I just assumed that since Vegas is basically a gay vacation mecca, it had a pretty accessible gay escort scene.

    Also, if SrlslySerious isnt already making a breaking news cartoon covering this where every comment and pontification coming from the on-air reporter about gay prostitution cuts to a confused Daniel Negraneu being introduced as a staff expert, then I lose faith in everything.


    Eg:

    Burt Sandywoods: "Breaking news, an unnamed WSOP bracelet winner and corpulent aficionado of dinosaurs is reportedly being charged with soliciting prostitution! Just how far will addicts of gay sex go to get their 'fix'? CXBC staff expert Daniel Negraneu has the facts! Daniel?"

    Cut to confused looking Daniel Negraneu whose in a bathrobe putting sugar in his coffee, filmed through his kitchen window. Superimposed under him is "Daniel Negraneu: Gay Sex Authority" in an official looking banner.

    MAYHEM ENSUES.
