Was Dirk Nowitzki wife arrested?
Most people think that Jessica Olsson was arrested; however, it is not true. The police arrested Dirk Nowitzki ex-fiancée, Cristal Taylor.
Cristal was already in trouble with the law for a theft and forgery case, which was 12 years old. She was arrested two times in Texas for misconduct in 2000.
Additionally, Dirk’s former fiancée was again arrested in Jefferson County for not paying dental services charges in 2006. It is said to be a sum of USD 20,000. Her multiple trouble with the law finally landed her in jail. She was sentenced to five years of imprisonment in August 2009.
Cristal seems to have a tough time managing money. Also, she was racked up in debt of at least USD 330 Thousand.
Some of her offenses included:
- Violation of probation as she failed to appear before her trial office.
- Failing to attend the hearing of theft and forgery cases.
- Twice arrested for misconduct.
- Fraud as she didn’t pay the Dental Service charges
- Repeated stealing and forgery
It is heartbreaking to learn that Dirk had spent USD 250,000 buying her an engagement ring. She was arrested from Nowitzki’s house.
She is now out of prison; however, it seems she is trying to stay away from trouble. Moreover, she is prohibited from leaving Missouri.
