PONTIAC (WWJ) – Another member of the University of Michigan’s famed “Fab Five” is being held in the Oakland County Jail.

John Sellek, a spokesman for the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, says Jimmy King is behind $17,000 in child support..

“It’s for a period of over the last three years or so where he was very inconsistently making payments. Now it’s not our first choice to file criminal charges in this case because when we put someone in jail, they’re going to obviously have a hard time making payments,” Sellek told WWJ Newsradio 950.

“But what we have learned over the last few years is if someone says they don’t have the money to pay, when they’re suddenly chasing a 4-year felony, they find the money,” Selleck said.

Arrested, Wednesday, Jimmy is being held on a $3,500 cash bond. He will be back in court next week.

King joins his former teammate, Jalen Rose, who is currently serving a 20-day sentence for drunk driving.
