A CBS spokeswoman says "Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season."

District of Columbia police say the CBS basketball analyst and former NBA player has been arrested and charged with soliciting a prostitute.

Lt. Kelvin Cusick tells The Associated Press that Anthony was arrested at 5:46 p.m. on Friday. He said Saturday that Anthony faces a misdemeanor solicitation charge that's punishable by up to 180 days in jail.

Cusick says the 47-year-old Anthony was released Friday evening.

Anthony had been scheduled to announce the Michigan State-Maryland men's basketball game Saturday in nearby College Park, Maryland.
