Antoine Walker, Slum Lord

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Nov 29, 2009 5:30PM

Former Mount Carmel High star and NBA star Antoine Walker is in hot water for slum conditions at various buildings he owns across the city, according to a report by the Tribune: "Real estate investment companies that list Walker as an investor or principal -- Walker Ventures LLC and AW Realty LLC -- are the target of more than a dozen lawsuits alleging poor management of numerous properties, unpaid debts and damages caused by shoddy repair work." In an interview with the Trib, Walker apologized for the conditions and said, "I accept full responsibility for the debts of my company."
