TAMPA, Fla. -- Former NFL running back Travis Henry is in federal custody after violating conditions of his bond.

Tampa U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Pizzo ruled Tuesday that Henry violated bond conditions set by a Montana judge when he consumed alcohol. He was arrested by U.S. Marshals and Polk County sheriff's deputies in Auburndale.

Henry pleaded guilty in April to trafficking cocaine in a federal drug case. He has not yet been sentenced.

A telephone message left with Henry's attorney was not immediately returned.

Henry was arrested in Denver last October after authorities broke apart a drug ring that trafficked cocaine between Colorado and Montana. He was described as the "money guy" who helped finance the operation.
