Probably not a good idea to tell a judge you have no plans on paying child support when you just received a $450k check. But, that is what Allen Iverson did and as you can imagine the Judge wasn’t very happy. Here is how it all went down in court. Iverson admitted that he told Tawanna that he had no intention of paying her child support despite the fact that he had just received $462,460.24 and thus had the ability to pay. With those words from his mouth, Judge Lane held him in Contempt of Court and ordered him to pay a total $71,000.00 within 72 hours otherwise she directed the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office to place him under arrest and keep him in jail until the payment is made. Judge Lane also stated in her written order the following: The father, rather unapologetically, testified that he had consumed alcohol “maybe twenty” times recently, including during his parenting time; that he had not taken any therapy sessions; that he had not taken any therapy sessions; that he had not attended any AA meetings; and that he did not intend to attend any. Judge Lane gave the former NBA star 72 hours to provide  proof that he has registered with a licensed entity that has the ability to screen for drug and alcohol usage otherwise she ordered Fulton County Sheriff to place him under arrest and hold him in jail for five days. The good news is A.I. can now buy himself a cheeseburger, but he just needs to pay, so he doesn’t end up in jail. He doesn’t seem to be taking the proceedings very seriously. That didn’t work out too well for Chad Johnson, so A.I. you have been warned don’t butt slap your attorney if you come out of this ok.
