According to court documents, Washington was arrested at a Columbus hotel after agreeing to pay an undercover cop $100 for oral sex. Washington came to the hotel after answering an ad for an escort that police had posted on Backpage.com. ABC 6 has more details:

Once in the hotel room, Washington told the officer he wanted a “short stay” at the hotel, authorities say. He was told that a short stay would cost $60. The documents state Washington took cash out of his pocket and said he had $100. He reportedly asked the officer if she had change.

The officer said she did not have change; Washington responded: “Well, what will $100 get me?”

Washington, a senior, was an integral part of Ohio State’s defense this year, and projects as an early round pick in the NFL draft. He has been charged with a first-degree misdemeanor, and will appear in court on Dec. 17.
