One of my favorite players of the 90s and the best player in NBA Live 96 started off 2013 on a bad note when he was arrested for playing his music (Stephen Jackson maybe?) too loud.  Not the most popular man in Milwaukee, Spree is a member of Wisconsin’s “Tax Deadbeats” owing the state $3.5 million in unpaid taxes.

3.5 may sound like a lot but that’s not enough to feed stray cats because you might remember Spree rejecting a 3 year $21 million deal because he has children to feed.
He also had his $1.5 million yacht auctioned off by the US Marshalls a few years ago.

From the Milwaukee Journal

Milwaukee native and former NBA star Latrell Sprewell was arrested for disorderly conduct Monday afternoon after police received repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee’s east side, according to jail records reviewed by the Journal Sentinel Tuesday.

Police would not release details of the incident other than to report that police had received two complaints within one hour Monday afternoon and had received several complaints of loud music from the residence in recent months.

Sprewell, 42 and a graduate of Washington High School, was booked into the jail about 4:15 p.m.
