Freddie Mitchell on his arrest


Former Eagle Freddie Mitchell, cohosting with Dan Schwartzman from 10 a.m. to noon on 97.5 The Fanatic, led off today's show with ... himself.

He said wasn't thanking his hands; he had to thank his lawyer.

Mitchell spent two hours with the Lower Merion Police yesterday after he was pulled over for speeding in his Maserati and an outstanding warrant was found for his arrest.

FredEx said he did not know he was a wanted man.

He acknowledged on the air that he has not paid child support for his daughter ("little princess"), but "they don't understand."

"When it comes to parenting [mothers] .. have all the rights," he said.

Hear his statement here.

It's been a rotten few months for Mitchell.

In September, a judge took away the barbecue restaurant he owned in Florida.
