|Larry Brown, 32, a former running back with the Dallas Cowboys football team, was released Monday from the Tarrant County Jail “after agreeing to pay back nearly $44,000 in bad checks he is accused of writing at Las Vegas casinos,” according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram. He allegedly wrote 18 bad checks to casinos between December of last year and March of this year. |
Brown played for six years with the Cowboys in the 1990s, and was voted the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the Super Bowl played in 1996.
Mr. Brown was picked up by Fort Worth police on outstanding arrest warrants issued from Nevada police authorities. The Star-Telegram said they could not find Brown for comment. But one of the two prosecuting attorneys of the County Bad Check Unit in Las Vegas, Dan Bowman, was happy that Brown “... made some restitution.” Las Vegas authorities then decided they would drop extradition plans and Mr. Brown was released.
