Darius McCrary Arrested for Not Paying Child Support

Family Matters star released after writing $5,500 check.

Darius McCrary hasn't been taking care of his Family Matters. At least that's what a court decided when it arrested the sitcom star for unpaid child support totaling $5,500. McCrary went before a judge in Michigan on Wednesday, TMZ reports, and was given the choice to write a check or spend 14 days behind bars.


Unsurprisingly, the actor chose to put some of his Family Matters residuals to work and pay what he owed. He was released after just a couple of hours. 
In 2014, McCrary was reported to have full custody of his son, Zechariah, after initially agreeing to share legal guardianship with the little one’s mother, who is from Michigan. It seems that the custody arrangement changed in the past year. At the time, he described fatherhood as being "a joy."
“It’s my greatest role to date," he continued. "Zech is just so awesome. He just reminds me every day of the responsibility I have as a man and a father. Not only to him but to myself. The better I am for me, the better I am for him.” is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
