Stephen Davis played running back in the NFL for 10 years with the Redskins, Panthers, and the Rams. The three time pro-bowler has been arrrested for failure to pay retail taxes on his nightclub in South Carolina, according to CBS’s Greenville, S.C. affiliate:

“Davis owns a club called PURE Lounge located on Berryhill Road in Columbia [South Carolina] according to the Department of Revenue. The Lexington County Detention Center reports Davis is being held for operation of retail business without license and two charges of fraudulent checks/stop payment.”

I applaud his effort to get something going after football because a lot players don’t, i.e. Vince Young, but you have to pay your taxes young man, or they will shut you down. Davis was arrested on Wednesday and charged with operating a business without a license. If convicted, he could face up to 30 days in prison and $200 in fines.
