Bryant Jermaine Livingston, 39, of Manassas, VA was arrested and charged with five counts of prostitution on March 16, police said.
"On February 15 at approximately 7:40 p.m., officers from the 3rd District responded to the Crowne Plaza hotel located at 8777 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, for a complaint of prostitution. Management recognized Livingston as a frequent hotel guest of the recent past. On those previous occasions, management had observed groups of men and women frequently entering and exiting Livingston's room after waiting in the hotel lobby area. Management observed similar behavior on the evening of the February 15," police said in a news release.
Hotel management and police entered the room Livingston was already in and saw "eleven subjects in the room," police said.
The room was occupied with "... three women and four men in various stages of undress. Several people were in the two beds while others were seated and standing in the room," police said.
Police said they interviewed everyone in the room and one man admitted that he had paid Livingston $100 to enter the hotel room and engage in sexual activities.
"In the weeks following this incident, officers obtained an arrest warrant charging Livingston with five counts of prostitution. The warrant was served on March 16. Livingston was released on bond. The investigation is continuing," police said.
