CEDAR CITY-- An executive at Southern Utah University has been arrested on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.
The Spectrum of St. George reports that the school put Wesley Rogers Curtis on administrative leave.
Authorities say Curtis, the university's vice president for government relations, was among eight men arrested in Cedar City for misdemeanor solicitation. They were accused of responding to an advertisement and making an appointment with a police decoy.
Curtis was released Friday from Iron County jail on a $623 bail bond. He could not be reached for comment.
SUU President Michael T. Benson released a statement saying Curtis will remain on leave until the outcome of the criminal investigation.
