Stefan Logan likely done with Redblacks after Monday arrest
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Friday Ottawa Redblacks running back/returner Stefan Logan is being held in a Watertown, N.Y. jail.
The 38-year-old Logan, who joined the Redblacks mid-season – playing eight games – is being held without bail at the Jefferson County Jail. It is believed that Logan will not be re-signed by the Redblacks for the 2020 season.
WWNY 7 News reported State Police arrested Logan Monday when he tried crossing into the U.S. at Alexandria Bay. Police told the TV station U.S. Customs officials learned Logan was wanted in Michigan for failure to pay child support. Logan is awaiting extradition.
Logan has played nine seasons in the CFL – with B.C., Montreal and Ottawa. In 2008, his first season with the Lions, he had 899 rushing yards, with 477 yards in receptions. In 2015, with the Alouettes, he had two punt returns for touchdowns. In 2019, as a Redblack, he had 38 punt returns for 486 yards and 34 kickoff returns for 719 yards.
Logan also spent time in the NFL – with Miami and Pittsburgh and Detroit, where he played from 2010-12. In 2010, he returned a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown and was a Pro Bowl alternate.
A statement from the Redblacks read: “The Ottawa Redblacks are aware that Stefan Logan was recently arrested in New York State. Out of respect for the legal process, the club will have no further comment.”
Montreal Gazette reporter Herb Zurkowsky tweeted in mid-January that Logan had been arrested in Florida for driving with a suspended licence and failure to pay back child support.
