MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A former Memphis Tiger was arrested Thursday night.

Antonio Pettis, also known as Antonio Burks, is accused of violating a protection order, violating bail conditions, stalking, and false reporting.

According to investigators, a woman told police that she and a friend were robbed at gunpoint by another woman. The suspect was recently involved in a domestic fight with Burks.

Police said that the victim then admitted she had filed a false report. She then claimed that Burks paid her to file the report.

A second police report said Burks also sent threatening text messages to the woman accused of the robbery.

Burks is in jail on a $50,000 bond.
