Mark Ingram gets another 27 months for skipping bail to watch son play

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
It turns out that former New York Giants star Mark Ingram's decision to jump bail in an effort to see his Heisman-Trophy-winning son play football will be a costly one.

Ingram, who is already serving more than seven years for money laundering and bank fraud, was arrested on Jan. 2, 2009 for failing to report to prison to serve his sentence.

Today, he was sentenced to an extra 27 months for that failure.

Ingram's reason for not showing up?

His son, Mark Jr., was playing in the Orange Bowl and he wanted to watch.

"When it came to the 11th hour, I had to make a decision. My decision was to be with my son in what would be my last chance to watch him play in person in college," Ingram Sr. told USA Today in December.

The younger Ingram won the Heisman and led his Alabama squad to the national title this past year.
