Bryant McKinnie, who played at the University of Miami and was traded to the Miami Dolphins midway through last season, has found himself in more trouble after his car was repossessed after he stiffed lawyers on a huge bill.
To be more specific, McKinnie owed lawyers over $20,000 in bills, fees and penalties from work they did over the past several years. As a result, the lawyer sued him and got a judgement for $21,354.69 (no idea how they came up with the $0.69....perhaps as a jab at McKinnie's mistrials on the love boat fiasco and his misadventures at local strip clubs?!?).
The car was repossessed as a way to sell it at an auction to pay the lawyers. Not too long ago, McKinnie had settled a lawsuit with a strip club owner who claimed he had stiffed them on a bill for over $375,000.
This is just another problem for McKinnie who has had trouble laying low and keeping his name out of the papers for all the wrong reasons. It's no surprise he's not back with the Dolphins even for depth purposes - he just doesn't seem like the type of player that general manager Dennis Hickey and head coach Joe Philbin want on their team.
