Former NFL kicker pleads guilty to criminal damage in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. — Former NFL and University of Arizona kicker Max Zendejas
has pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage in connection with a
restaurant space he leased from the Tucson school.

Pima County prosecutors said the 50-year-old Zendejas could get up to two years
in prison when he’s sentenced Sept. 30.

Zendejas opened a Mexican restaurant and bar called Zendejas 13 across the
street from Arizona Stadium in 2010.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office accused Zendejas of stripping the
restaurant of a walk-in refrigerator, HVAC system, compressors, ceiling fans and
kitchen sinks worth thousands of dollars after the business closed in 2013.

Zendejas played for the Wildcats from 1982-85 and holds the school record for
career points with 360.

He spent three seasons in the NFL with Washington and Green Bay.
