More than 100 men were arrested in a Bellevue prostitution sting, police said.

Bellevue police announced that the week-long investigation called, “Operation On Demand” concluded a large-scale undercover operation aimed at targeting online sex buyers in King County.

"A year ago, the Bellevue Police Department and the King County Sheriff’s Office dismantled a large-scale human trafficking ring," said Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett. "This operation is a continuation of our effort to eradicate human trafficking crimes. We will continue to devote our combined resources to combat this plague."

Police told KIRO 7 among the individuals arrested was local sports radio host Mitch Levy, who had his show on KJR 950 AM.

“Some day I hope that you’ll allow me the opportunity to earn back your trust and respect,” Levy wrote.
