Former pro football player arrested on warrant

LAKEPORT – A former Dallas Cowboys football player was arrested Thursday on a misdemeanor bench warrant during a visit to Lake County.


Efren Herrera, 57, of Pomona was arrested for the warrant during a routine traffic stop just after 1 p.m. on Soda Bay Road near the Jack in the Box, Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office reported Friday.


Bauman said Herrera was the driver during the stop; when his driver's license status was checked the misdemeanor warrant was discovered.


The $25,000 bench warrant, said Bauman, was issued by Orange County for misdemeanor contempt of court violations.


Bauman said Herrera was booked into the Lake County Jail, with jail records indicating bail was set at $25,000. He was bailed out a little over an hour after he was booked, Bauman added.


Herrera is in Lake County this weekend for the annual Pepsi Celebrity Golf Shootout at Buckingham Golf and Country Club.


He was a place kicker in the National Football League from 1974 to 1982, during which time he played for three years with the Dallas Cowboys and was a member of one of their Super Bowl-winning teams. Herrera also kicked for the Seattle Seahawks.
