(Newser) – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been hit with two counts of soliciting prostitution, NPR reports via the Palm Beach State Attorney's Office. Prosecutors allege he visited a Florida massage parlor for sex acts on the morning of the AFC Championship Game, which he attended in Kansas City later that day, reports the AP. According to documents released by the attorney's office on Monday, it was his second visit to the parlor in less than 24 hours, with CNBC reporting he allegedly paid two women during that encounter; Kraft has a home in Palm Beach. The latest:

  • The documents say Kraft arrived at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in a chauffeured 2015 blue Bentley at 11am on Jan. 20. He was videotaped receiving oral and manual sex from a woman at the spa at a strip mall in Jupiter. CNBC says the document describes a woman hugging him before, during, and after their alleged 15-minute encounter. Officials say he gave her a $100 bill and another bill that could not be identified.
