Professional golfer Steve Thomas was one of 40 men arrested for suspected solicitation of minors for sex in an undercover sting in Florida called “Operation Red Cheeks.” The 55-year-old has appeared in 44 PGA Tour events.
His arrest affidavit states Thomas thought he was chatting with a woman about sex with her 13-year-old daughter. He agreed to meet the teen for sex, deputies say, and sent photos of himself golfing.
Investigators searched Thomas’ sport utility vehicle after his arrest, the affidavit states, finding three condoms, two packages of chocolate pudding and a bottle of honey. Deputies say he confessed.
Disturbingly, the sting also caught a Gainesville swim coach and an eighth-grade math teacher. So, basically, keep your child off the Internet and away from extracurricular activities. You might want to consider home-schooling.
