Conrad Murray, who allegedly administered the lethal dose of propofol that killed Michael Jackson, says he can't pay the $13,311.47 he owes in back child support for his 10-year-old son because of all the bad publicity he's gotten lately. It took an arrest warrant for him to come up with an excuse.
TMZ reports that Murray filed court documents a bench warrant was issued against him for bailing out on payments for his 10-year-old son, claiming:
As a result of the media coverage of Michael Jackson's death, combined with the deleterious effects of the current recession, [Murray] was simply unable to meet his obligations."
The documents also claim that Murray is "temporarily unable to maintain a practice or obtain employment because of the extensive media coverage related to the death of Michael Jackson."
