New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is being charged in a Jupiter, Florida, prostitution bust, police announced Friday.

The stunning announcement, first reported by Boston’s CBS affiliate, said an arrest warrant had been issued for Mr. Kraft, a longtime friend of President Trump.

Police say Mr. Kraft was involved in two incidents last month at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter and there is video evidence of the act, according to the report.

He is among 25 people charged by Jupiter Police in the bust, the CBS affiliate said.

Mr. Kraft faces two misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution.

A local Jupiter, Florida, publication reported Mr. Kraft was in the area last weekend, attending a fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on Saturday before traveling to North Carolina for the NBA All-Star Game.

Mr. Kraft, 77, has owned the Patriots for 25 years, winning six Super Bowls. His wife died in 2011.
