HOUSTON -- Southern University athletic director Greg LaFleur is free on bond after his arrest in Houston on a charge of soliciting a prostitute.

LaFleur is the father of Gonzaga forward Robert Sacre. The family connection is one of the main reasons Southern played the Bulldogs in their season opener at McCarthey Athletic Center on November 12th. Gonzaga beat the Jaguars, 117-72.

Police records show LaFleur, who is also a former NFL tight end, was arrested on a downtown Houston street about 8:30 p.m. Sunday and released Monday after posting $500 bond.

Court records showed no attorney for LeFleur, whose home telephone has been disconnected. University spokesman Edward Pratt says Southern officials will investigate, then "will determine what action or actions are necessary." He declined further comment.

LaFleur has been Southern's athletic director for six years. The Ville Platte, La., native and former LSU star tight end and receiver played with the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts in the NFL.
