Former Temple University football player Matt Brown was one of two people arrested Tuesday by Baltimore police on human-trafficking charges.
Brown, a running back for the Owls from 2009-12, and Anthony Eley Jr. were taken into custody after detectives identified the pair as the men who brought three girls ages 14, 16 and 17 to a hotel and knew they were underage and engaging in prostitution, according to reports. Baltimore police set up the arrest by responding to an advertisement known to be used by prostitutes. The girls were then taken into custody as victims of human trafficking.
