Houston Texans' D.J. Swearinger accused of theft after unpaid bill dispute
Houston Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger is making headlines this week after he was accused of not paying in full for nearly $20,000 worth of customized upgrades to his vehicle.
On Monday night, Mark Espino, with Espi Motors, called Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies to file a theft report. According to the police report, Swearinger had a custom grill, subwoofer, Batman logo, custom wheels, new tires and a train horn added to his vehicle.
A spokesperson with the Harris County Sheriff's office said Swearinger paid $10,000 up front. The 23-year-old picked up his vehicle Monday night and allegedly drove off without paying the rest of the bill.
Investigators said Swearinger requested an itemized receipt, but did not receive one.
The Harris County District Attorney's office is not accepting the charges until they talk to Swearinger to get his side of the story, and said that the case may end up being a civil matter.
A member of Swearinger's representation team told KPRC 2 on Thursday it was all a matter of miscommunication.
"This is a cut and dry situation and the matter is being cleared up as we speak... It was a miscommunication and is being handled by his team," said Ollie Mayberry, with BAM! PR & Marketing.
He said Swearinger is currently in Florida for training.
The strong safety has played in all 16 games during his two seasons with the Texans, who drafted him in the second round in 2013.
