A former winner of the World Series of Poker was arrested in a prostitution sting at a Wake Forest hotel earlier this week, according to police.

A Wake Forest Police Department spokesperson said Gregory Paul Raymer, 48, was one of six men who responded to an advertisement posted by undercover police on a website often used by prostitutes.

Raymer nicknamed "Fossilman," is best known for winning the 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event.

Bond for the men was set at $1,000.
