Buster Skrine, a former NFL cornerback, is currently on the run from police in Canada after failing to appear in court and disconnecting his ankle monitor. The 35-year-old is facing a total of 16 charges related to bank fraud, which allegedly took place over a nine-month period.

According to authorities, Skrine used fake checks to open bank accounts, identifying himself as a former NFL player. He would then withdraw money before the checks cleared, resulting in losses of over $100,000 for multiple banks. The scheme is believed to have continued for nearly a year.
Skrine was released on bail from a Saskatchewan correctional center in April and was scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on May 6. However, he failed to show up for the court date, and his GPS monitor has since gone offline.
The former NFL player, who played for several teams including the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, and Tennessee Titans, earned over $40 million during his 11-year career. He announced his retirement from the NFL in July 2022.
Skrine's arrest and subsequent charges are a significant fall from grace for the former athlete. The authorities are now searching for him and urging anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.
