Andre Rison Wanted for Back Child Support, Accused of Being Deadbeat Dad
Former NFL wide receiver Andre Rison, best known for his antics off field instead of his ability on the field, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for failing to pay child support in the state of Arizona.
Rison, the five time Pro-Bowler who famously dated the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and infamously had his Atlanta mansion burned down by Lopes, allegedly owes more than $10,000 in back child support. Per the indictment, Rison has failed to make payments for more than 2 years.
Ann Birmingham Scheel, acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona stated, “This indictment sends a message to others contemplating this same decision that failing to meet your financial obligation to your child is unacceptable and you will be held accountable.”
Guys, let this be a lesson. No one is exempt from the long arm of the law so keep your long arm in your pants if you can’t or won’t be a father
Rison, a Flint, Michigan native, is currently working as the head coach football coach at Flint Northwestern High School. If convicted, Rison could serve up to 2 years in prison.
