Wizards, They Love Them Hos

Good rule of thumb: When a professional athlete is arrested for solicitation of a prostitute, we are required to write about it, even if that athlete only average 3.7 points a game last year.

The promising Wizards forward Andray Blatche was busted Thursday morning for trying to pick up an undercover cop with a buddy of his.

According to D.C. police, Blatche and a male acquaintance were arrested at 12:11 yesterday morning in front of 10 Thomas Circle in Northwest Washington after attempting to solicit sex from a female police officer in the prostitution enforcement unit. He appeared in D.C. Superior Court yesterday evening and was released. He also was wanted for failure to appear on a charge of driving without a license, stemming from an arrest in October 2006, according to charging documents.

We have to say, as far as NBA off-court sexual malfeasance goes, we'll take the Thwarted Courtesan Threesome over the Masturbating In Your Limo To Porn. At least Blatche was trying.
