TREASURE ISLAND -- Former tennis star Roscoe Tanner was extradited from Germany to this town near Tampa on charges of writing a bad check worth $35,000 and failing to pay child support.
Tanner was being held in the Pinellas County Jail without bail Tuesday, one day after being extradited.
Tanner bounced a check for $35,595 to buy a 32-foot boat three years ago while working as a tennis instructor at the Treasure Island Tennis and Yacht Club, the Pinellas County State Attorney's Office said.
He used the boat's title as collateral for a $10,000 loan, and bounced a check to the lending company when he started repayments, court documents said.
Tanner is also wanted in New Jersey, where he is accused of failing to pay more than $70,000 in child support since November, said Capt. Ken Bird of the Somerset County Sheriff's Office.
Tanner has had an ongoing legal battle with a New Jersey woman who said he fathered her child.
