(Newser) – What do you do when you're pulled over by the cops after leaving a day spa where you allegedly paid for sex? If the latest reports on Robert Kraft are accurate, you talk football and show off your Super Bowl ring. That's according to Florida prosecutors cited by the Boston Globe, who, in court records, note that Kraft was "very polite and respectful during the whole process" on Jan. 19, when he was stopped by a police officer after visiting the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter. The traffic stop took place the day before he was set to fly to Kansas City for a Patriots playoff game with the Chiefs.

Having football on his mind may have been why Kraft reportedly chatted up the officer about the NFL, asking the cop if he was a Miami Dolphins fan, then showing him his Massachusetts driver's license—and his Super Bowl ring—and revealing his ownership of the Patriots, per the Sun Sentinel. The officer didn't know it was Kraft he was stopping before he stopped him "for the sole purpose of identification," prosecutors say. The 77-year-old has pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution. (The tape that allegedly shows Kraft paying for sex remains under wraps for now.)
