Former Oklahoma Sooners defensive back Lawrence “L.J.” Moore was arrested last week after being accused of pimping for ex-Sooners cheerleader Micah Madison Parker.
Parker, 23, was busted after soliciting an undercover officer for sex, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in Oklahoma City, per Fox affiliate KOKH. The officer arranged a meeting with Parker at a local hotel after connecting on Backpage.com. Parker allegedly offered sex in exchange for $200.
After vice detectives arrived on the premises to take Parker into custody, the affidavit claims, Parker attempted to toss several cellphones into the toilet. Marijuana and a green substance, which contained a strong odor believed to be codeine, also were discovered in the room.
Through social media exchanges and calls from jail, authorities deduced that Moore, 22, allegedly was involved in the prostitution of Parker. He later was arrested after attempting to pick up her car from the hotel.
Parker was taken to the Oklahoma City Jail on complaints of destruction of evidence, offering to engage in acts of prostitution, in addition to two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Moore was booked on pandering, aiding and abetting prostitution, possession of marijuana and possession of a dangerous substance.
Parker, the daughter of Oklahoma’s cheerleading coach, has had several run-ins with the law in recent years. She is currently on probation stemming from a 2015 guilty plea to DUI and driving under suspension, per The Lostogle.com. Parker was also wanted following probation violations, according to JohnTV.
Moore played in 13 games for OU during the 2013 season.
