Former University of Pittsburgh football star Bob Buczkowski was charged last month "with operating a prostitution and cocaine empire," and Tribune-Review columnist Mike Seate says Pittsburgh City Paper helped Buczkowski operate his "brothel-on-wheels." According to Seate, the indictment alleges that the defendant and his girlfriend placed ads in the AAN-member paper's classified section to recruit prostitutes and solicit customers. Editor Chris Potter tells Seate that authorities have not contacted anyone at City Paper's parent company to discuss the case.
