Calvin Ayre not arrested during raid, computers confiscated
Calvin Ayre, CEO of Bodog.com, confirmed to Gambling911.com this morning that he had not been arrested but his home was indeed raided by local Costa Rican law enforcement agents. Personal computers were confiscated during the investigation, which lasted nearly four hours.
"All that was happening was a 'rap' party," Ayre told Gambling911.com Saturday morning.
Local media claimed the police were summoned as a result of "illegal poker games" taking place at the sprawling mansion, however, Gambling911.com witnessed no visible signs of poker tables at the Ayre residence during its Tuesday visit there.
Ayre also informed Gambling911.com that a call placed to police suggested he was hosting an illegal prostitution ring there.
He did confirm that a few of his personal security guards were apprehended, though one has since been released. Ayre and his staff have the Canadian Embassy involved in getting the other guards released.
A reality show hosted by Bodog.com Founder and CEO Calvin Ayre features celebrities, poker pros and internet poker qualifiers, all vying for $750,000 in prize money. This will be the first Poker lifestyle show ever produced and should create some ripples in the industry. Of course, this could also be the first ever reality show where the set is raided during shooting. It is being produced by Fox Sports Net. The network continued filming throughout last night's ordeal, according to Ayre.
Filming for the series was set to continue Saturday afternoon. A Fox news report was also being taped on location at Ayre's home later today.
Calvin Ayre appears on the cover of Forbes Magazine's "Billionaire" issue.
"Ayre also informed Gambling911.com that a call placed to police
suggested he was hosting an illegal prostitution ring there."
I though prostitution was legal in CR.
