A Maryland high school powerhouse is missing a few players for this weekend’s game. Why? Bad grades? Discipline problems in school? Maybe hazing?
Apparently five lads have been removed from the DeMatha High School team after they allegedly hired three prostitutes off the Internet (oh yeah, blame the Internet!) last weekend while the team was in North Carolina. Not a lot of details but the school claims it must have happened after 5 am (a prime time for NC hookers, apparently) because chaperones performed a 1:30 a.m. bedcheck and hallway monitoring until 4:30 a.m.
There is also no word about how the school found out about the hookers, but we wouldn’t be surprised if someone was doing a bit of braggin’.
More on the story from NBC Washington:
The school had been largely quiet on the case until this morning. DeMatha, which is in Hyattsville, is a Catholic school for boys. It has a nationally known football program that has produced many NFL players, including Byron Westbrook and Josh Wilson of the Washington Redskins.
We certainly have our share of naughty coaches here at BadJocks. But table tennis (or as most of the kid’s call it these days ping-pong)? No, we can’t recall anyone from the world of high stakes, international table tennis getting in trouble before . . . and certainly not running some kind of prostitution operation from a wealthy suburb in India.
According to reports, coach Santosh Dhanraj Lalwani, 30, and two other men would charge ” . . . Rs3,000 for the ‘services’ and Lalwani used to keep Rs1,000 with him. They relied entirely on word-of-mouth publicity. Lalwani used to take the girls to hotels to meet clients. He has told us that around 10 women work with him.”
In the end, a special police task force was able to crack the case. Best part of the story? The Indian newspaper goes to great lengths to explain that Lalwani’s wife is from a wealthy family, that she has a good job at an insurance company, and had no idea her husband was running a high priced call girl ring.
Well, of course not.
She’s kind of like a super hero with a secret identity, isn’t she? In the evenings and on weekends, Terry Mussari, 45, coaches on the “C” level cheering squad, (girls 10- and 11-year-old) for Stoughton Youth Athletic Club(MA) and during the day she runs a spa. Well, it’s actually more than just a spa, if you believe the police reports.
According to cops, Ms. Mussari also offered an undercover cops a little bonus if he hired 12 of her masseuses for a “private party.” For a mere $1720, the ladies would also provide party guests with sexual favors. A police report also suggests that the ladies who work for Mussari also provided sexual services at her spas in exchange for “tips.” Oh, and something about selling drugs, but that doesn’t seem to be the main thrust–so to speak–of the investigation.
League officials claim to be embarrassed by the claims and would have suspended Mussari if she hadn’t already resigned.
