Jamal Lewis, ex-Baltimore Ravens RB, reportedly arrested

Former Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns star Jamal Lewis was jailed briefly in Clayton County, Ga., for allegedly failing to pay child support, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

According to the newspaper, the 32-year-old former running back was released shortly after midnight Wednesday after he was charged with child abandonment, a misdemeanor.

Lewis won a Super Bowl with the Ravens after the 2000 season, and rushed for 2,066 yards in 2003 -- the second-highest total in NFL history. But he has fallen on hard times since his retirement in 2009. He filed for bankruptcy in April, listing $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in debts.
