Talk about a downward spiral! Terrell Owens, once viewed as one of THE most talented players in the league is now playing for an in-door arena team. Adding to his problems, he could possibly face jail time for failing to pay child support.

One of his baby mamas claims that Terrell is $20,000 behind and wants a judge to force him to pay up!

The Fulton County contempt of court petition, the latest of several filed in the past year by Melanie Paige Smith, says Owens owes $5,000 for each of the months of December, January, February and March.

A Fulton County judge ordered the payments for the support of the couple’s daughter in March 2007.

“He has not indicated if he ever plans to send another penny for their daughter,” Smith’s attorney, Randall Kessler, said in a letter to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“We plan to ask the court to send a strong message, given that he has only paid support in the last 10 months after a contempt action has been filed against him,” Kessler said.
