Soccer Star Fakes Injury to Avoid Being Arrested For Unpaid Child Support (Video)
It does not matter what country you’re from and what sport you’re a star in, the facts remain the same: Strap up if you don’t want to pay any child support for an unwanted kid that you didn’t intend to make.
Enner Valencia, a striker for Everton in the Premier League, tried and succeeded with his own personal Houdini act when police officers were on hand to arrest him for not paying $17,000 in back child support.
“Valencia was met by police along with the lawyer representing the mother of his child after a morning training session, hoping to arrest Valencia and force him to pay. However, several officers refused to detain him even after stopping the team bus looking to look for him.”
