Stephen Davis, a former running back with the Redskins, Panthers and Rams, was arrested for failure to pay retail taxes on his nightclub, according to CBS's Greenville, S.C. affiliate.

"Davis owns a club called PURE Lounge located on Berryhill Road in Columbia [South Carolina] according to the Department of Revenue. The Lexington County Detention Center reports Davis is being held for operation of retail business without license and two charges of fraudulent checks/stop payment."

Davis was arrested on Wednesday and charged with operating a business without a license. If convicted, he could face up to 30 days in prison and $200 in fines.
