Greg ‘Fossilman’ Raymer was arrested last night in a prostitution bust at a North Carolina hotel. TMZ had initially reported that the bust involved a male prostitute, but new reports have surfaced that state the prostitutes were in fact female. Raymer just couldn’t order the hooker correctly.

According to WTVD-ABC 11:

Gregory Paul Raymer, 48, was one of six men who responded to an advertisement posted by undercover police on a popular website men often seek out female prostitutes. The men face misdemeanor charges of prostitution and attempted crimes against nature.

Raymer has made over $7.2 million throughout his poker career, including a $5 million in 2004 after winning the WSOP. He was released on $1,000 bond.

Fun Fact:

Another one of the men in the bust was 41-year old Christopher Burell Shella, the attorney for Duke Lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum. He defended her after her 2011 murder accusations.



Meanwhile, Fossilman didn’t miss a beat by getting right back into the tweet game as his mugshot was being splattered on TMZ.

The best move after trying to buy a hooker? Give money to kids.
