Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Michael Bishop has a nagging reminder of his life back in Hogtown every time he checks his pay stub.

According to recently filed court documents, a Toronto car company has secured a garnishment order against Bishop in the amount of $114, 028.

The order, approved Aug. 31, is reportedly in connection to a 2003 Cadillac Escalade.

Served with order

Court documents identify the car company as Corporate Cars, a limited partnership of Tracmount/Glojack Leasing Ltd. Bishop was served with the order Oct. 20 at the Bombers' Maroons Road office, "the only known address for the debtor."

Court documents do not detail how much is to be garnisheed from Bishop's individual pay cheques.

"Michael is taking steps to have it resolved, present his case," said Bombers director of football operations Ross Hodgkinson. "By all accounts, he wants his day in court."

A lawyer representing Corporate Cars could not be reached for comment last night.

Under the order, the football club is required to garnishee Bishop's salary until the debt has been paid in full or until such time Bishop ceases to be a Bomber.

The order expires after one year and a new one must be issued if the debt has not been paid in full.
