The Sports Agent Who Inspired "Jerry Maguire" Has a Warrant Out For His Arrest

By all accounts, Leigh Steinberg should be a very, very rich man. As a sports agent, he's represented everyone from Troy Aikman and Warren Moon to Ben Roethlisberger and Ricky Williams. But it sounds like Steinberg, who was the inspiration behind the movie, Jerry Maguire, has gotten himself into quite the predicament because of money that he's failed to pay. A bench warrant has been issued for him after he failed to appear in court recently for a case involving a $1.4 million debt that he owes to a leasing company. He was ordered to pay the $1.4 million last year to the Irvine Co. in Cali. But, as of right now, he hasn't paid it off, so there's a warrant out for him.

Show them the money, Leigh! Or else...
