His mother who took him off the streets was evicted from her house.
ESPN did a story on this matter which included an interview with Rumeal and his mother (in separate locations.) While his mother was in tears after being evicted from her house because her son like to buy cars and give money to strippers....Rumeal pretty much sat there instulting his mother and telling her to get over it...I mean, it's only a house.
Unfortunately for Rumeal, the bank he stole from in Iowa actually wanted their money back. He was just convicted of a laundry list of charges relating to bank fraud, conspiracy, wire fraud....etc. Got 6.5 years in prison. His mother doesn't have a home anymore, but now Rumeal does. He should crush the prison basketball game.
