WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Authorities have seized the assets of a former NFL player's two Wichita restaurants because he owes more than $80,000 in back taxes.

Agents from the Kansas Department of Revenue and Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday seized the assets of Wings & Things LLC. The KDOR said the delinquent state sales and withholding tax owed by 34-year-old Kamerion Wimbley totals $82,329.50.

Wings & Things has two Wichita locations:  2800 East Central and 2624 East 21st Street North.

The types of assets seized include all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory, as well as personal property belonging to Wimbley. The business was sealed closed with a public notice posted on the outside.

All seized assets will be sold at public auction and the proceeds will pay for the delinquent taxes.

The KDOR says its policy and practice is to work with taxpayers in delinquent status to voluntarily enter into repayment agreements.

"It is only after these efforts and multiple failed collection attempts that the Department is forced to execute a tax warrant, utilizing such actions as bank levies, till taps, and ultimately asset seizure to ensure compliance with the law."

Wimbley, a Wichita Northwest High School graduate, played for the Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raider and Tennessee Titans.
