A University football player was arrested Thursday in a prostitution sting operation in Ypsilanti Township. Jeremy LeSueur, a 21-year old Kinesiology junior, was arrested Thursday evening for accosting and soliciting a prostitute, a misdemeanor crime in Michigan. The offense is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.
LeSueur has been suspended from the football team, but head coach Lloyd Carr would not comment why, The Associated Press reported.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department arrested LeSueur and three other men in the operation and confiscated their vehicles. The owners of the confiscated vehicles must pay $750 to get their cars back. LeSueur was driving his mother’s Cadillac, the Ann Arbor News reported. If a person is given permission by a relative or friend to drive the vehicle, the driver is responsible to pay the fine. But, the vehicle would not be released to the owner until the fine was paid.
The Wolverines lost to Michigan State 26-24 in November when the Spartans completed a first down after LeSueur was called for a personal foul.
LeSueur is from Holly Springs, Mississippi, and attended Holly Springs High School.
