Ottawa Redblacks return man Stefan Logan has been jailed in Watertown, New York and held without bail in the Jefferson County Jail, according to WWNY TV 7 News.

State Police arrested the 38-year-old Logan on Monday after he tried crossing from Canada into the United States at the Alexandria Bay port of entry. Police say U.S. Customs officials learned he was wanted in Oakland County, Michigan for failure to pay child support. He’s awaiting extradition to Michigan.

Logan was released by the Montreal Alouettes in July and signed by the Redblacks in August. He has 325 carries for 2,007 yards and three touchdowns, 105 receptions for 971 yards and four majors, 425 punt returns for 4,746 yards and four TDs, 303 kick-off returns for 6,683 yards and 24 missed field goal returns for 541 yards in 107 CFL games.

The Tampa, Florida native went unselected in the 2007 NFL draft coming out of the University of South Dakota. B.C. inked Logan to a contract where he rushed 122 times for 889 yards, 7.3 yards per carry, made 52 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns, returned 14 punts for 148 yards and nine kick-offs for 266 yards in 2008.

His versatility and return ability earned Logan an NFL contract with Pittsburgh for the 2009 campaign. He spent one season with the Steelers and three in Detroit as a member of the Lions. During four seasons south of the border, Logan returned 171 kick-offs for 4,343 yards, including one touchdown which was 105 yards long, hauled in 130 punts for 1,243 yards, ran 27 times for 144 yards and caught eight passes for 52 yards.

The Redblacks have yet to comment on the incident. Logan is a pending free agent, his contract expires in February.
