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.
