— A new report shows a former Duke University lacrosse player owes the Internal Revenue Service millions of dollars.

Reade Seligmann was one of three players exonerated in a racially charged rape case in 2006.

The Detroit News reported on Thursday that Seligmann owes almost $6.5 million in taxes from 2007 – the year the players reached an undisclosed settlement with Duke.

The newspaper cited a tax lien filed this week in New York City.

The 24-year-old New Jersey native's lawyer disputes the tax bill.
