Former Tiger declawed

Former Detroit Tiger Ronald LeFlore was arrested Saturday while signing autographs for fans at Gibraltar Trade Center in Mount Clemens on outstanding warrants for failing to pay child support. He was arrested for the same offence in 1999. LeFlore was signing autographs for $4 each at the trade center with former Detroit Tigers pitcher Mickey Lolich when police entered the facility and took him into custody. He owes approximately $48,000 in past child support bills, police said. LeFlore, who played six seasons with the Tigers, was the subject of a 1978 movie, "One in a Million: The Ron LeFlore Story," about his rise as a baseball player after being a prison inmate.

Considering I have no clue who this guy is, he will be hard pressed to find 12,000 people to pay for his signature to cover his child support. He would probably have better luck using the other means of getting fast cash in Detroit - stealing hub-caps.
