Former Raven Jamal Lewis Charged With Failing To Pay Child Support

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Former NFL running back Jamal Lewis has been released from a Georgia jail after he was arrested for allegedly not paying child support.

Clayton County sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Brian Crisp says Lewis, 32, was charged with child abandonment, a misdemeanor. Crisp says Lewis was released on bond shortly after midnight Wednesday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Lewis was booked in the Clayton County jail around 11 p.m. Tuesday. An arrest warrant alleges that Lewis had no contact with his son for more than a year.

Lewis filed for bankruptcy in April, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts.
