Former Packers Mark Chmura Being Sued for $717K

Brookfield bank files legal action against former Green Bay Packers tight end in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

Former Green Bay Packers tight end Mark Chmura is being sued for more than $700,000 after his business venture ran into trouble, according to a civil suit filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

The lawsuit was filed this month by Securant Bank & Trust in Brookfield against Chmura’s company, BC Property Investments.

The suit alleges that BC Property is in default on a business loan by $717,096. The bank is seeking the full payment, plus accruing interest from Sept. 26 until the final amount is paid.

Chmura, of the Town of Genesee, filed for bankruptcy for his BC Pabst Holdings company in early 2012, along with fellow developers Sonny Bando and Matt Chmura, according to The Business Journal.

While Chmura is owed $150,000 by BC Pabst Holdings, the company also owes $4.5 million to CRE Ventures, according to a bankruptcy posting.

Chmura does not have a listed phone number and an attorney is not yet shown in court documents.

Chmura played for the Packers from 1993 to 1999. In 2000, he was charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl but was found not guilty.

Meanwhile, Chmura is among former football players who are suing the NFL in federal court over concussions.

This is sad but I guess what goes around comes around in the end. With the real estate market crash the millionaire want to be's will finally see what the rest of us have had to endure. All of these sports figures end up broke in the end and that would appear to be the case here. Welcome to our economy.

Thousands and thousands of people have financial difficulties. It is a real shame that because he once played for the Green Bay Packers that this is making "headline" news. And what a disgrace for the writer to mention a "charge" that he was found NOT GUILTY of. I hope anyone who reads this finds it equally disgusting!

If stupidity was a crime we'd need more prisons.

@anonymous - apparently you are the only person in the world who has never been accused of something that you never did. He was found NOT GUILTY!! Which means that there was not enough evidence, that he was not guilty of any crime. And to mention it in this article is disappointing.
