World Series of Poker champion Greg Raymer was arrested on Wednesday after he attempted to arrange a meeting with a prostitute online, Inquisitr.com reported March 15. Raymer, better known as the "FossilMan," was arrested at a hotel in Wake Forest, N.C. after the prostitute turned out to be an undercover police officer. It was originally reported that the sting involved male prostitutes, but later corrected that the sting was advertising for female prostitutes.
The North Carolina police arrested Raymer along with five other men. Police Chief Jeffrey Leonard stated that no actual prostitutes were at the hotel at the time of the sting. The local hotel cooperated completely with the investigation. The officers selected the hotel for the undercover operation at random, and no criminal activity had ever occurred there previously.
The poker champ is known for his lizard eye hologram glasses that he wears indoors when he plays poker. He won the 2004 World Series of Poker main event and has won millions playing poker. Raymer, 48, reportedly owns a North Carolina house that is valued at almost $1.6 million. His website states that he is married. He has been released on $1,000 bond.
