Carrying a concealed weapon, pot possession, and a number of casino disturbances are just a few of the legal issues former NBA all-star Allen Iverson has sorted through in his illustrious career.

Now, the embattled 38-year-old might have to add child abduction to his rap sheet after the mother of his kids accused him of stealing their children at the end of May.

Iverson’s ex-wife, Tawana Iverson, has filed legal documents claiming the former Philadelphia 76ers point guard asked to take their five children – ranging in age from 3 to 16 – to Charlotte, N.C., for five days and never returned the kids, according to TMZ.

The gossip site goes on to detail how an arranged meeting between Tawana and Iverson on June 4 fell through when the four-time NBA scoring champ failed to turn up.

Tawana, according to TMZ, claims Iverson is currently at a Sheraton hotel in Georgia with their kids, whom she has primary physical custody of.

A player who amassed more than $150 million in total earnings during his storied 14-year NBA career, Iverson lost his $4.5 million mansion in February. Multiple reports also suggest he is dead broke.

At that time, a judge sided with Tawana during their divorce trial, accusing the former NBA MVP of being a deadbeat and an alcoholic.

"(Mr. Iverson) does not know how to manage (his five) children, has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development,” the court documents state.

Iverson last attempted a comeback in 2010 when he signed with Turkish side Besiktas. From 1996-2010, the first overall NBA draft pick featured with the Sixers, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies.
