 Rison facing 20 days for failing to pay support
 
 
   
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A judge ordered the arrest of former star receiver Andre Rison on Monday for failing to pay $107,000 in child support.

Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker said Rison should be jailed for 20 days and asked that other jurisdictions outside the state assist in arresting the former football player.

Rison's attorney, Max Richardson, declined comment. Rison was not at court Monday.

An attorney for Raycoa Handley, the mother of two of Rison's children, said he thinks Rison is in Michigan or Florida.

Handley's attorney, Randy Kessler, said this is the fourth or fifth time Rison has missed a child support hearing involving Handley.

Rison last played for the Oakland Raiders in 2000, finishing with 41 catches for 606 yards and six touchdowns while helping them reach the AFC championship game. He was suspended for four games in 2001 for a repeat violation of the league's substance abuse policy and has been out of football since.

Rison, who played from 1989-2000, had 743 catches for 10,205 yards and 84 touchdowns in 12 seasons with seven teams.
