A former Tampa Bay Buccaneer quarterback is being sued for $20,000 for allegedly failing to repay a debt.
Shaun King played for the Bucs from 1999 until 2004. A man named Andre Duffie is suing the retired football player after reportedly loaning him money in 2012. The exact amount of the loan wasn’t specified.
According to the lawsuit, King wrote a $5,000 check to Duffie the next month, but that bounced.
Duffie said in April, three years after the loan was given, he gave King 30 days to repay the money plus a $250 fee. King still has not repaid the debt.
The lawsuit could spell bad news for King. According to Pinellas County property appraisal documents, King lives in a home co-owned by his mother, Carolyn King and Alfred Williams Jr. According to Zillow, the five-bedroom, two-bathroom home is worth just over $50,000.
The home is located in one of St. Pete’s poorest neighborhoods, Child’s Park.
King has also struggled with the law. In 2011 he reportedly tried to overturn a license suspension resulting from a DUI.
King is a graduate of Gibbs High School. His most recent professional work appears to be as a Yahoo Sports analyst.
