Andre Rison, who played WR for the Chiefs from 1997 to 1999, is facing court-ordered bankruptcy.

Former NFL and Michigan State receiver Andre Rison faces a court-ordered bankruptcy to pay more than $105,000 in back child support and other claims.

Terese Dear, a courtroom deputy for U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Flint, said an order was entered June 6 to put Rison into Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Rison, a Flint native, has until June 25 to respond before the court proceeds with efforts to recover his assets, Dear said.

Rison owes child support, attorney fees and court administrative costs, according to a bankruptcy court petition.

Rison's ex-wife, Tonja Rison of Southfield, is listed as one of the creditors. Her claim is for more than $58,000 in child support. An Atlanta law office is claiming another $46,000 in unpaid legal fees for seeking child support from Rison for two children by a girlfriend.

There are just too many "Bad Moon Rison" jokes so I won't even go there. By the way, did you know that Andre Rison has played for seven NFL teams? Rison should have just told the court he's Brock Middlebrook.
