Khalid El-Amin has been released from custody in Connecticut after being arrested for unpaid child support and failure to show up at multiple court appearances, according to the Hartford Courant

The report says El-Amin, who lives in the Minneapolis area, was in Connecticut to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the University of Connecticut's 1999 college basketball national championship, for which El-Amin was a star player. 

"El-Amin was released Monday afternoon after paying $10,000 of the approximately $126,000 in delinquent child support he owes to a Hartford area woman with whom he had a daughter 18 years ago. Prestley told El-Amin that he must also comply with a payment schedule of $780 per month."

El-Amin won three state championships at Minneapolis North High School in the 1990s and then went on to start at UConn. 

He tweeted "What a wonderful weekend!" following the championship anniversary celebration that took place Feb. 24. 

He had a short NBA career and is now basketball trainer and a college basketball commentator with CBS Sports.
