Southern AD Greg LaFleur free on bond

HOUSTON -- Southern University athletic director Greg LaFleur is free on bond after his arrest in Houston on a charge of soliciting a prostitute.

Houston police spokesman John Cannon says the 52-year-old former NFL tight end was arrested on a downtown street about 8:30 p.m. Sunday as a result of a reverse prostitution sting by undercover officers. LaFleur was released Monday on $500 bond.

Court records showed no attorney for LaFleur, whose home telephone has been disconnected. University spokesman Edward Pratt says Southern officials will investigate, then "will determine what action or actions are necessary."

LaFleur, who is also the father of Gonzaga center Robert Sacre, has been Southern's athletic director for six years. The Ville Platte, La., native and former LSU star tight end and receiver played with the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts in the NFL.
