Warrant Issued For Former 49er Terrell Owens After Missed Court Date

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF / AP) — A spokeswoman for unemployed National Football League player Terrell Owens is acknowledging that a warrant has been issued after Owens failed to show up for a court date over child support payments.

Spokeswoman Diana Bianchini says that Owens had tried to reschedule an Oct. 24 hearing in Contra Costa County Court because he had set up a televised workout in the hopes of securing a new contract.

According to Bianchini, Owens was seeking a new attorney and was representing himself while trying to change the court date.

She says the issue over the arrest warrant issued this week will be handled by his new attorneys.

Bianchini say Owens is seeking to modify his child support payments because the payments were based on the approximately $12 million a year he was making in 2007 when he played for the Dallas Cowboys.
