KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — A PGA golfer is among 40 suspects arrested in central Florida as part of an underage sex sting operation.
Osceola County Sheriff’s detectives said Tuesday that pro golfer Steve Thomas was charged with traveling to seduce an underage girl and using a computer to entice a legal guardian or parent to commit sex acts on an underage girl.
There was no telephone listing for Thomas at the Meridian, Miss., address he gave detectives and he couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday.
The PGA Tour Web site says he has finished in the top 10 of a tournament only once, and his winnings stand at just over $25,000.
Also arrested during the weeklong sex sting operation were a Gainesville swim instructor, an eighth-grade teacher and eight college students.
