Bond has been set for Raymer at $1,000.

Raymer, who is sometimes known by his nickname Fossilman, famously won the Main Event for $5 million in 2004. He is one of the most well-known poker players in the world.

The arrest was a part of a wider attempt to crack down on a growing trend of prostitution according to Wake Forest police.

"The locations prostitutes choose for this type of criminal activity vary and seldom remain the same for more than a couple of days at a time which makes enforcement difficult," said Police Chief Jeff Leonard in a statement.
