Update 2: Councilman Brady Banks Arrested on Patronizing Prostitution Charge

Brady Banks
North Precinct Crime Suppression Unit officers late this afternoon arrested Metro Councilman Brady Banks on a misdemeanor charge of patronizing prostitution during a sting at a hotel on Athens Way in the MetroCenter area.
          Banks, 33, is accused of paying $100 to a female undercover officer in exchange for sex.  Banks met the undercover officer in a hotel room after responding to an escort service ad posted by the police department on the Internet.  He was arrested at 4:40 p.m.
          Banks is one of three men arrested during the sting today.  Also charged were Matthew Moynihan, 38, of Hendersonville (arrested at 3:50 p.m.), and Jyotin Arora, 37, of Hermitage (arrested at 9:50 a.m.).
          Banks’ bond was set by a judicial commissioner at $1,000.  The same bond was set for Moynihan and Arora.

Update 2/17/2012: Brady Banks today resigned his job as Director of the non-profit Governor's Books from Birth Foundation. Councilman Banks and his wife had a baby a couple of months ago. The prostitution charge is a misdemeanor. There is nothing in the Metro Charter that would force Mr. Banks to resign his council seat as a result of this arrest.
