When we last heard from former Panthers, Redskins and Rams running back Stephen Davis, he was joining one of the concussion lawsuits against the NFL.
Davis complained of short-term memory loss and said that one of the things he was having trouble remembering to do was pay his bills. Whether it is because of memory issues or not, Davis’ alleged failure to pay a tax bill has landed him in some trouble with the authorities.
Davis was arrested in Columbia, South Carolina on Wednesday for allegedly failing to pay taxes on a nightclub he owns in the area. WCNC.com reports that Davis has been charged with operating a business without a license and three counts of writing fraudulent checks.
“Since the revocation of its license by the SC Department of Revenue in July 2012, the Revenue investigation proved that PURE Lounge continued to operate and conduct sales even without a retail license,” the SC Department of Revenue said in a statement.
Davis, who is due in court on Thursday, ran for 8,052 yards and 65 touchdowns during his 11-year NFL career.
