Judge Orders Arrest of Jason Caffey
By Jay Sorgi
ATLANTA (AP) -- An Atlanta judge has ordered the arrest of former NBA player Jason Caffey, who's accused of failing to pay thousands in child support.
In October, a judge in Alabama rejected a bankruptcy case filed by Caffey, clearing the way for him to be sued for child support.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Cynthia D. Wright issued an arrest warrant Tuesday over Caffey's failure to obey a court order that he pay more than $200,000 in child support and legal fees to Lorunda Brown and her attorney.
"We've been trying to get his attention and this should do it," said Brown's attorney, Randy Kessler. Kessler said Brown is the mother of Caffey's 6-year-old son.
Caffey played nine years in the NBA for the Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks.
A listing under the name Jason Caffey in the Atlanta area was disconnected Monday night, and an attorney who represented Caffey in the past didn't immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
