Josh Wright Does The Wrong Thing...Again


Josh Wright came back into our lives earlier this week when we learned he's be back for another thrilling season of King of King summer basketball. Wright is scheduled to play for a team called 99 Problems. If we go by the Jay-Z song of note, the theory goes that Wright has 99 problems but acquiring a ladyfriend isn't one of them.

Might be time to change that team name to 100 problems now that Wright has been arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

25-year-old Joshua Wright is charged with patronizing a prostitute, a misdemeanor and loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution, a violation.

Utica police say he was trying to pay for sex from an undercover female officer posing as a prostitute.

It's the latest in a long line of off-the-court troubles for the once-SU hoops star. He was charged with grand larceny back in 2008 after stealing a friend's credit card. And that follows the issues that led him to leave the SU basketball team so suddenly.
