A warrant has now been issued for his arrest. WEEI also states that "Kraft was caught on tape receiving sex acts in a massage parlor and was driven on multiple occasions to the parlor."

According to CBS Boston, "the incidents are part of a larger crackdown on human trafficking and prostitution at several spas in the West Palm Beach area. Kraft faces two misdemeanor charges of soliciting another for prostitution. Police said they are in the process of issuing an arrest warrant in the case."

The Boston Globe has now published a statement from a spokesperson for Kraft: "We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further."

We will continue to update with new information.
