Former NFL and University of Arizona kicker Max Zendejas has been indicted on damage and theft charges in connection with his recently closed Tucson restaurant.



The 2013 offseason was a rough one for NFL players and the law. Take a look back at the players arrested before camp ever opened.

Pima County authorities say the indictment claims Zendejas ''recklessly defaced or damaged property'' belonging to the university causing more than $10,000 in damages at the restaurant.

The Arizona Daily Star says the property includes a walk-in refrigerator, compressors, ceiling fans and kitchen sinks.

Zendejas opened the Mexican restaurant and bar across the street from Arizona Stadium in 2010.

The Zendejas 13 restaurant closed April 12.

The 49-year-old Zendejas set several scoring records with the Wildcats from 1982-85.

He was a fourth-round pick in the 1986 NFL draft and played one season with Washington and two with Green Bay before getting involved in family businesses.
