Stephen Davis was charged with operating a business without a license and three counts of fraudulent checks/stop payment.
Former Washington Redskins running back Stephen Davis, who amassed more than 8,000 yards in a career that spanned 11 years and three teams, was released from jail last Friday after posting bond following his arrest on charges of operating a business without a license and three other counts on Wednesday.
If convicted, Davis could face up to 30 days in jail and $200 in fines, according to a WSPA ABC-7 report.
Police are charging Davis with keeping his PURE Lounge in Columbia, S.C. open after its license was revoked in July. Davis allegedly wrote three checks from a closed bank account that bounced. For those three checks, Davis is also being charged with three counts of fraudulent checks/stop payment.
Davis spent Wednesday and Thursday night in Lexington County Detention center in South Carolina.
Davis retired in 2008 after a season with the St. Louis Rams. In seven seasons with the Washington Redskins, Davis rushed for 5,790 yards and 45 touchdowns.
