Temple's Khalif Wyatt Cuffed With 27 Others In Police Bust Of Atlantic City Prostitution Ring... On His 21st Birthday
This weekend, he was busted by Atlantic City police along with 27 others allegedly involved in a South Jersey prostitution syndicate.
CSN Philly reports that Wyatt tried to solicit an undercover officer. Woops. More details: [CSN Philly]
Wyatt was taken into custody early on Sunday morning near the intersection of Montpelier Avenue and Pacific Avenue and charged with engaging in prostitution and resisting arrest. Agents from the FBI Lost Innocence Task Force, as well as officers from the Absecon Police Department and the Atlantic County Sherriff's Department were involved in the two-day operation that, according to a press release, was designed to "combat the prostitution problem in Atlantic City."

All we know is that, according to that mention right there, dude was dabbling in something he probably shouldn't have been, and now he's got problems. He was also cited for resisting arrest.
According to CSN, Wyatt's arrest came early Sunday morning, which would have been just after he turned 21. Note the timestamps from late Saturday night:

Presumably, he was arrested sometime between those first two Tweets and the third one.
More certain? That the rising juinor for the Owls who posted 17.1 points per game a year ago (second-best on the team) doesn't have a repeat season in his immediate future.
