Greg-Raymer-MugshotAccording to the ABC 11 (WTVD) in Wake Forest, N.C., Greg ‘FossilMan’ Raymer was arrested in a prostitution sting at a Wake Forest hotel earlier this week. Wake Forest is a town of about 30k people, just north of Raleigh, NC.

A Wake Forest Police Department spokesperson said 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.

Greg Raymer famously won the 2004 WSOP, earning $5.0M in prize money. Wake County records show Raymer owns a house in Wakefield valued at $1.6 million.

The men face misdemeanor charges of “prostitution and attempted crimes against nature”. Bond for the men was set at $1000.

Wake Forest police said the sting was part of a wider attempt to crack down on prostitution.

“The locations prostitutes choose for this type of criminal activity vary and seldom remain the same for more than a couple of days at a time which makes enforcement difficult,” said Police Chief Jeff Leonard in a statement.
