Ex-Auburn RB Stephen Davis Arrested
When former Auburn running back Stephen Davis sued the NFL in July for concussions he sustained, he told Nathan Fenno of The Washington Times that he was suffering from short-term memory loss, including forgetting to pay his bills.
It could be the three-time Pro Bowler’s best defense after he was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly failing to pay taxes on PURE, a nightclub that Davis owns in Columbia, SC.
The 38-year-old Davis, who last played in the NFL with the Rams in 2006, was charged with operating a business without a license and three counts of writing fraudulent checks.
Before becoming an 11-year workhorse in the NFL, Davis twice earned All-SEC honors with Auburn. As a freshman, he was part of the 1993 Tigers team that went 11–0 and finished No. 4 in the AP Poll. Stephen Davis profile
