McCarty Takes A Financial Hit

from the Detroit Free Press,
Darren McCarty, whose rugged play as a Red Wing, charitable fund-raising and heavy-metal musicianship made him one of the most popular professional athletes in recent Detroit history, has filed for bankruptcy. In documents submitted to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Detroit, McCarty, 34, lists assets of $1.9 million and debts of $6.2 million -- including at least $185,000 to casinos in Detroit and Las Vegas... "He's not making the money he used to make," Fried said. He said McCarty made about $2.1 million per season in Detroit and now makes about $850,000. "I don't think he counted on being" released from the Wings last summer.
