According to the criminal complaintBeard responded to a Craigslist ad on Jan. It was purportedly posted by a father who said he was "in town for SB and brought my open and active family I have a few hours to spend with you and the rest of my fun clan. In reality, it was a sting operation by police from various Minnesota jurisdictions who are carrying out anti sex-trafficking operations during the Super Bowl. I taught them well. Beard then allegedly responded by asking to meet up close to midnight, before asking for more information about the teens.
The officer then posed as the girl, whom he called "Giselle," and during the conversation with Beard he asked her if she enjoyed oral sex and what acts they could carry out when they could meet. Beard said he was working at Super Bowl Live and couldn't meet them until he was finished for the day.
When Beard arrived he was met by officers and arrested. Police then found his cellphone and sent a text from the phone they were using, confirming it was his when the text arrived.
