The story(nutshell): Pre-papacy, as Montini, he was apparently arrested for soliciting a male prostitute. This was shushed up.

I'm not entirely sure how/why since at the time he wasn't a cardinal,  much less a papal shortlister. He had no  power then, so to speak, he was just monsignor(?), thus, a priest basically.

Perhaps it was a courtesy extended by the local police to  clergyman, maybe they dealt with it by informing superiors (e.g. their bishop) back then.

Really not sure how that would have flown,  but it sure was a different time...
