Basketball analyst Greg Anthony has been suspended indefinitely and will not work for CBS for the remainder of the season, the network said in a statement on Saturday.

Turner Sports also suspended Anthony indefinitely and said “We will have no further comments at this time.”

Notice of the suspensions comes less than a day after Anthony was reportedly arrested and charged with soliciting a prostitute.

District of Columbia police told the Associated Press that Anthony was arrested at 5:46 p.m. on Friday and released that evening.

He had been scheduled to call Saturday’s game between Michigan State and No. 14 Maryland in College Park, Md.

Anthony, 47, played on six teams over 11 seasons in the NBA after being selected in the first round of the 1991 draft out of UNLV.
