NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia Tech quarterback Maurice DeShazo is among hundreds of men arrested in a nationwide sting on prostitution and other sex crime charges.

DeShazo is charged with soliciting prostitution. Media outlets report DeShazo was arrested along with 14 other men in Newport News.

They were part of the "National Day of Johns Arrests." Law enforcement agencies in eight states conducted stings in hotels, on the streets, in brothels and online over a 10-day period that ended Monday night.

DeShazo was Virginia Tech's quarterback on the 1993 Independence Bowl and 1994 Gator Bowl teams. He was inducted into the Virginia Tech Athletic Hall of Fame in 2009.
