A California judge has issued a bench warrant for Terrell Owens after the ex-NFL wide receiver missed a child support hearing last month, according to a report filed by TMZ.com. Owens claims he missed the hearing because he was obligated to attend the tryout in hopes of being signed by an NFL team, according to the report.

No NFL teams were at the tryout held at a California high school.

A representative for Owens told TMZ that the payments were being made, but the amounts weren't accurate to his actual income. "Mr. Owens pays child support payments for his 4 children," the representative said, according to the report. "The amounts are based on his 2007 Cowboys income of $11-$12 million a year. Mr. Owens is working to resolve all of these matters and appreciates his fans' support. We are confident that Mr. Owens will be signed this season to the NFL and all of his child support payments will be modified fairly according to his true income."
