Hill-Murray football coach Mauer arrested in prostitution sting

Posted: Updated:
FRIDLEY, Minn. (KMSP) -

Hill-Murray High School varsity football coach Mark Mauer was one of 19 men charged this week in connection with an undercover prostitution sting at a Fridley, Minn. hotel.

The 54-year-old from Woodbury, Minn. allegedly answered an ad offering sex that was posted on Backpage.com and other websites. According to Fridley police, Mauer offered an undercover officer $100 for "full service" during the hotel sting. During processing, officers recovered $100 cash and some Viagra pills from Mauer.

Mauer's arrest was first reported by the Fridley Patch local news website, which says he is a cousin of Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer.

Fridley police booked four rooms at the LivInn Hotel on Central Ave. to set up the sting. In one room, a female undercover officer met with the johns, while officers monitored video surveillance from a second room across the hall.

Once an offer of money for sex was made, police moved in and made their arrest. A third room was used for processing each suspect and a fourth room served as a holding cell for the arrested men who were taken to jail in Anoka.

When FOX 9 called Hill-Murray for a comment on Friday, the school's athletic director was not yet aware of Mauer's arrest.

2012 was Mauer's first season as Hill-Murray football coach. He led the Pioneers to a quarterfinal appearance in the Class 4A state tournament.

The Hill-Murray High School football team webpage has the following welcome message:

"The Hill-Murray Football program is about blocking, tackling, catching, running, and kicking, but it is also about…Leadership, pride, dedication, commitment, and investment; Promoting family values based on strong Christian values."

    A 16-foot-long exotic snake reportedly slithering around New Jersey's largest lake is apparently a suburban legend. Or the snake just isn't hungry. The state has stopped looking for the reptile after scientists failed to find any evidence of it in Lake Hopatcong and traps baited with chicken were left untouched. Three unconfirmed sightings this month of a snake, perhaps an anaconda as long as 16 feet, raised concerns among visitors and swimmers.
