Terrell Owens: Cops Called When Former NFL Star Refuses To Leave Woman’s House
Terrell Owens had the cops called on him early Friday after he reportedly refused to leave a woman’s property.
The former NFL receiver was at the woman’s house in the early morning hours when the woman “made it clear” that she didn’t want Terrell Owens there anymore and called the cops, Sports Illustrated noted. The woman said she didn’t fear for her safety, but she did want Owens to leave and needed help doing so.
Police arrived to the woman’s house at close to 4:30 am and told Owens to leave, which he did without further incident. He wasn’t arrested, a TMZ report noted.
Owens appears to join a number of other NFL players who have had difficult transitions into post-football life. Owens has reportedly run into financial problems, and has sought work in an arena football league but was fired for failing to meet team commitments. The 39-year-old former player was also forced to sell off three of his homes, including a Georgia mansion that he unloaded late last year, taking a $150,000 loss on it.
In 2011 a warrant was issued for his arrest for failing to pay child support and appear in court.
Owens last played in the NFL in 2010, but tried a comeback attempt last season. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks in the second week of training camp, but was cut by the team before the season started.
Now that Terrell Owens had the cops called on him, maybe the former All-Pro wide receiver can finally put himself back on the straight and narrow.
