Officials in Florida have issued a warrant for the arrest of former Houston Rockets’ star Steve Francis, for burglarizing a BMW back in June before he was booked for a DWI over the weekend.According to TMZ, Francis asked a bartender at the Cortez Clam Factory on June 15th, for a flashlight which he then used to break into a BMW and steal a makeup pouch, wallet, gold wedding ring, gold diamond band, earrings, press credentials and $100 in cash, total worth of $7,252.
Two days later Francis turned himself in to police with a plastic bag containing the stolen items saying:
“I just robbed somebody, take me to jail. I’m turning myself in.”
He was left without being charged with a crime despite his admission.. But now cops want him on a felony burglary charge. Francis has had some well-documented struggles since retiring from the NBA.
