The government doesn’t mess around when it comes to getting its money.
Which is what former NBA player and current Utah Jazz assistant coach Sidney Lowe found out when they came knocking at his door this week, reports WRAL Sports out of North Caronia (where Lowe lives in the off-season).
Sidney Lowe, former head men’s basketball coach at North Carolina State University, was arrested Monday on charges that he failed to file state tax returns in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Yup, that will get you in trouble. Lowe coached the NC State Wolfpack during those years, making an estimated $500,000 a year, WRAL reports.
As this is a misdemeanor — the government wants its money, not just to jail someone — Lowe likely will be back with the Jazz soon.
Lowe played four seasons in the NBA, starting in 1983 with the Pacers but with stops in Detroit, Atlanta, Charlotte and Minnesota.
People — pay your taxes. It’s not fun, but it’s a silly thing to get arrested over.
