Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

If Terrell Owens’ biggest problem was the fact he couldn’t find a job, life would be grand. But now he’s got bigger problems than his unemployment.

As TMZ reports, a California judge has issued an arrest warrant for Owens after he failed to show up for a child support hearing.

We told you a few days ago that Owens had asked to reduce his child support payments, because he’s not making as much money today as he was before. Therefore, he can’t pay as much in child support. Or none at all, as Monique Reynolds, who is taking Owens to court for back payments, claims in court.

TO's Problems
Owens apparently knew he was not going to show up for his court appearance -- it was right around the time of his workout in which zero NFL teams showed up to watch -- and he apparently tried to reschedule, but Reynolds’ representation refused.

And if Owens thought he could catch on with an NFL team in order to earn some money, Bengals safety Chris Crocker, Owens’ former teammate, said he can understand why nobody seems interested.

“When we talk about how perception is reality, the perception around the league is that he’s a bad locker room guy and a bad teammate,” Crocker said in this week’s Five Questions (or more). “Organizations don’t want to bring that dynamic in the locker room, especially with him 37 or 38 years old. I just don’t think people are willing to do it. I’m not saying he’s a bad teammate, but he was called one when he was in San Fran, in Philly, in Dallas. It’s like a circus. Teams just don’t want to go that route. You bring him in, and you bring in all the stuff that goes with it.”

Hopefully, “all that stuff” doesn’t include becoming a deadbeat dad.

Stokomo - In the future, I might suggest that you refrain from using (cheater, scumbag, liar, adulterer, racist) Barry Bonds as an example of pride.  My goodness....

Stuff the racial crap.  And the manliness posturing, too.  Let's talk about TO the football player.  If he is a no-show for a court hearing about his kids, he is no-show period.  Show's over, TO
Really because my ex wife never shows up for child support or visitations hearings and the judge is always sympathetic towards her, even though she won't even answer the phone in court when he tries to call for her side... I make 80,000 (but live in San Diego) a year but pay 1,200 a month for 1 kid that lives in Tucson, Az.

Its  not a fact. I'm black and I don't have any children. At my age 53 years old, I don't think I will be having any in the future. I see plenty of white kids running around here with only mom at home. Let's look at how typical that is.

And White men don't have kids with mulitple women?  Your statement is typical of a racist.  I have kids by mulitiple women and I take care of them.  I didn't ask for a cookie I showed you an example of a typical black man that does take care of his kids and pay child support.  Don't you take care of your kids?  Do you even have kids?  If not then shut up.

I think this is crap... T.O. has made so much money and he can't pay his child support? But the truth is California is the biggest shame on child support I have ever seen... I know of two people 1 male and 1 female who have full custody of thier children and pay child support... yes child support, not alimony to their former spouses who don't even see the children.

Ricksteric.... typical also does not mean what you see on TV or read in the paper or assume to be the case. If you use your analogy, you can also say that about whites, latinos, and any color. This is a societal problem, not a color problem. I have two kids by one wife, I don't have babies on the side or women on the side. And I don't need any cookie or praise for it. Do your own research and tell me how many athletes have babies by multiple women. I'd bet it would be less than 50%; and if it's less than 50% it's not "typical." You're right about it not having to be 100%, but it does have to be above 50%......
