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.
    
In the NBA, Anthony played 11 seasons with six teams from 1991-92 to 2001-02, including the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers.  The guard and defensive specialist averaged 7.3 points per game.
