DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A DeKalb County judge has denied a request by former pro football player Travis Henry for a temporary cut in child support payments for one of his nine children.
A hearing on whether the former Denver Broncos running back can still afford to pay $3,000 a month to the mother of his 5-year-old son lasted most of the day Thursday.
Henry's lawyer said the 30-year-old Henry can't afford the payments because he is no longer getting a paycheck from the National Football League and is in danger of going to prison on federal drug charges.
A lawyer for his son's mother argued Henry spent thousands on jewelry, cars, a new home and other items.
Henry was arrested in Colorado last fall on felony cocaine possession charges.
