NFL | Deuce McAllister's home on the auction block

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 07:54:17 -0700

A house owned by former RB Deuce McAllister is scheduled to be auctioned July 27. The auction could be called off before then, according to the Sheriff's Office. A sheriff's sale of the house originally had been scheduled for June. In the meantime, the two sides have been working toward a settlement. The scheduled sale stems from a writ of seizure resulting from a suit by Whitney National Bank against McAllister. According to the writ, McAllister owes $1.8 million on the mortgage with Whitney. That figure has been inflated by nearly $1 million because of two years' worth of added interest and other penalties while the negotiations were ongoing.
