Inkoom sued for missing rent payments
Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom is being sued in Washington for failing to pay rent and causing extensive damage to a rented property.
The landlord of the property in Arlington has launched a lawsuit to the tune of $65,316.01 USD against Inkoom and his wife Omega for causing extensive damage and missing rent payments.
The Ghanaian right-back who was on the books of D.C United at the time is now a free agent after failing to agree terms with Houston Dynamo in a multi-player trade.
The Washington Post reports that according to documents filed in Arlington Circuit Court on Tuesday, Willette [landlord] claimed Inkoom owes $11,685 in unpaid rent and late fees from February 2015 to April 2015. The monthly rent of $3,795 will continue to accrue through October.
In addition, the suit alleges, the estimated cost to repair damage to the property plus miscellaneous costs associated with the abandonment is $37,032.01 reports The Washington Post.
The landlord Curtis Willette in an interview on Tuesday said he offered Inkoom an extension on a missed rent payment. Two weeks later, after not receiving it, Willette said he attempted to call him, but the player’s cell phone was no longer in service.
Inkoom was part of the Ghana World Cup squad in Brazil last summer and has turned out for clubs in Switzerland, Ukraine, France and Greece.
