Warrant issued for former Michigan State star Andre Rison’s arrest
Andre Rison’s legal troubles continue, though he says he’s come a long way.
The one-time Michigan State star violated his probation in his child support case, according to the Associated Press, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Rison is not keeping up with the child support payments he was issued to make in 2013 — $1,000 a month to cut down his $300,000 debt — and failed a drug test for marijuana.
But Rison says he’s been painted unfairly. His son, Hunter, 4-star receiver in the class of 2017 who’s committed to Michigan State, lives with him.
“He lives under my roof. I take care of him. I coach his football team. … We’ve become the best of friends,” Rison told the Detroit Free Press’s Tresa Baldas.
“I’m just tired. Here I am, being looked at like a hardcore criminal. … I’m trying to do the right thing. My mistake was made years ago, and I’m still under this microscope.”
Rison caught 146 passes for 2,992 yards in four years at Michigan State, then played for seven NFL teams from 1989 to 2000.
