BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A local minister was arrested with more than 30 others in a vice sting carried out by Birmingham Police this week.

Dubbed "Operation Red Light," undercover officers saturated the area of 1st Avenue North in the Woodlawn area.

Tremon Muhammad, 36, was arrested for solicitation of a prostitute. Muhammed is a minister with the Nation of Islam in Birmingham.

His lawyer, Charles Salvagio, spoke to FOX6 News tonight, saying that something is "fishy" about the charges and arrests. He wouldn't elaborate.

Muhammad is also known for calling on the city to take action after a video was released showing six officers beating a theft suspect.
