Chicago judge issues arrest warrant for Eddy Curry

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge in Chicago has issued an arrest warrant for New York Knicks player Eddy Curry because he's failed to appear in court in connection with a civil lawsuit.

Cook County sheriff's spokesman Steve Patterson says the agency received the warrant June 14 and has contacted Curry's attorneys. Curry grew up in the Chicago area and used to play for the Bulls.

Court records show the case was a personal injury lawsuit filed by Christina White. Her attorney, Larry Rogers, says Curry failed to make a payment but declined to give details because the case is under seal.

A message left for Curry's attorney wasn't immediately returned Thursday. A Knicks spokesman declined to comment.
