The U.S. Attorney's Office has arrested former Broncos running back Travis Henry on cocaine-distribution charges, and the agent in the case makes some damning accusations, including that Henry was threatening to kill his drug runner if he didn't recoup $40,000 that he was allegedly owed.
If you're wondering why a former NFL millionaire is risking his life over a few keys of coke, recall that Henry has reportedly fathered nine children from nine different women. That's a lot of child support.
In an odd bit of irony, Henry's partner-in-crime was arrested without incident. Henry took off running, but was unable to escape his pursuers. Some things never change.
