TEAMS:
Agent Terry Watson was arrested Wednesday for allegedly giving gifts to college football players. The players he allegedly paid all played for the North Carolina Tar heels. Watson paid them in cash among other things in an effort to get them to sign autographs. Terry Watson is accused of giving the players $20,457.24 in benefits to ex Tar Heel Greg Little, $1,525.74 to Robert Quinn and $2,000 to Marvin Austin in the months of May through October of 2010. The Associated Press released this statement: A Georgia-based agent has been charged with violating the state’s sports agent laws by providing gifts to three former Tar Heels football players and obstruction of justice. An unsealed indictment states that a grand jury indicted Terry Watson with 13 counts of providing cash or travel accommodations to Marvin Austin, Greg Little and Robert Quinn valued at nearly $24,000 in an effort to sign them. Watson also faces one count of obstruction for not providing records sought by authorities. The 39-year-old Watson, based in Marietta, Ga., was arrested Wednesday morning, released on a $50,000 secured bond and will have his first court appearance in the afternoon. All three former UNC players are in the NFL.   Watson broke North Carolina laws when he allegedly bribed players to sign representation contracts as well as other benefits. After three years of investigating, Terry Watson as well as former UNC tutor Jennifer Wiley have been indicted in light of the investigation. The NCAA declared Greg Little and Robert Quinn permanently ineligible and Marvin Austin was dismissed from school altogether. All three players are now in the NFL while Watson goes to court today.
