Arrest warrant issued for Eddy Curry. Again.

This week a judge issued in Chicago issued an arrest warrant for Eddy Curry. Second time that has happened in a month. The Chicago Sun-Times has all the details (via Knickstweets):

Cook County Circuit Judge Alexander White ordered Curry’s arrest on Monday, after learning Curry failed to sign an agreement to pay the balance of a $660,000 legal settlement reached after he was sued for allegedly having sex with an underage girl.

The previous arrest warrant was issued in late June and quashed earlier this month after attorneys for Curry and the woman reached a payment schedule for the roughly $100,000 still owed the woman, according to court records.

Now the warrant, which calls on Curry to post a  $10,000 bond, is in the hands of the Cook County Sheriff’s office, a sheriff’s spokesman said. 

Traditionally in civil cases like this, the Sheriff and attorney get the client to turn himself in. Except Curry might not have an attorney — his lawyers have tried to get off the case due to non-payment.

It’s a pattern, Curry has been ordered by a judge to pay a $75,000 loan, and his house was once foreclosed for lack of payment.

Curry made $10.5 million last season from the Knicks and has made more than $57 million in his career.

It’s all just sad.

    If he is still in financial trouble now, he will really be screwed once his ridiculous contract expires after the upcoming season.

    I hope the NBA has a morals clause that lets Walsh void the contract.
    As a matter of fact, I hope they have a stupidity clause . . . but that would be too much to hope for

    Just plain sad, indeed! There’s no reason other than stupidity that Eddie Curry should have had to worry about money the rest of his life. Now all his worries are how he will get out of the mountain of financial obligations he’s apparently neglecting. Because chances are his big paydays in the NBA are slowly dwindling.

    REPEAT AFTER ME, CURRY , A LOWER CLASS PRIMATE , WAS JAILED IN THE BRONX ZOO. NEXT TO THE SNAKE ROOM. . HIS LAWYER SAID, ” STUPID DOES AS STUPID IS. “
