Temple Basketball Player Khalif Wyatt One Of 28 People Busted In Atlantic City Prostitution Sting

[blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/FOX29philly/status/212216096873394176″]

Khalif Wyatt is a basketball player at Temple University.  He also happens to enjoy some extracurriculars in Atlantic City when he is not on the court.  Wyatt was one of 28 people to be busted in an Atlantic City prostitution sting.

 The law enforcement official said Wyatt allegedly solicited an undercover officer posing as a prostitute and was apprehended after attempting to flee the scene.

This is not a good look for Khalif Wyatt, especially if he is trying to make a future in basketball.  Something tells me that most pro teams will tend to frown on prostitution busts.  Maybe Wyatt will be a little more careful in his dealings in the future, but this is not good.

There are no other details about the case right now, outside of the fact that Khalif Wyatt was caught up in the sting.  The charges will probably come out at some point soon, which will probably not be a good thing for the people involved.  Having stuff dealing with prostitution on your record is not exactly a good way to impress future employers.

Let this serve as a lesson to everyone out there.  Although places like Atlantic City can be great fun, make sure you know who you are dealing with at all times.  If someone seems a bit shady, they probably are.  Next thing you know, you are getting busted in a prostitution sting.  If you are someone like Khalif Wyatt, you probably want this to go away as fast as humanly possible.

Just another day of athletes getting caught up in wacky situations with the law.
