According to CBS affiliate WUSA, 39-year-old Bryant Jermaine Livingston was arrested and charged with five counts of prostitution on March 16, police said.

In a news release, police say officers responded to a prostitution complaint at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Silver Spring on February 15, WUSA reports. According to WUSA, police say management had observed groups of men and women frequently entering and exiting Livingston's room on multiple occasions in the past. They also observed similar behavior on February 15.
