Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been arrested in Jupiter and charged on two counts of soliciting prostitution, according to Jupiter police chief Daniel Kerr.
Kraft was arrested in connection to a recent bust in Florida massage parlors that were used for prostitution and human trafficking. Kerr said video evidence shows Kraft involved in sex acts at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa.
Kraft, 77, was in Florida for a fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Insititute that was held on Saturday. Kraft was also in attendance at the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina over the weekend.
I sat there in my Technical Writing class bored out of my mind, so i decided to take a peak on twitter just to see what was going on. That/s when it happened. A volley of tweets ranging from “Deflate Gate” jokes, to serious denouncements of anything having to do with sex trafficking. I saw the news that shocked not only the sports world, but everyone looking at twitter today. Robert Kraft, Legendary owner and now 6X Super Bowl Champ, had been charged on two counts of soliciting a prostitute.
I was blown away.
How could Big Bad Bob Kraft the cool old guy who wears the gold championship chains and hangs out with Meek Mill be so stupid? From what I’ve read since I heard the news is that there was a huge ring of massage parlors that doubled as those back alley “Massage Places” (think of the episode of “Friends” where Phoebe’s brother visits NYC for the first time and she treats him to a free massage from one of her co-workers, but he thinks its something a little different).
I honestly don’t know what to believe and what not to believe. There are so many facts that are unclear, and so many conspiracies that I’ve seen that honestly don’t sound that far off base. It’s a lot to take in, so I’ll be keeping a close eye on all of this.
This has already been a very fun off season and its not even March yet. Lets see what the future holds for Bobby moving forward.
