Steve Francis must wear ankle monitor after violating bond

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Former Houston Rockets star Steve Francis must wear an ankle monitor after a court ruling Thursday.

Francis was in court after being found in violation of his bond. The judge ordered him to get the interlock device on his vehicle unlocked and wear an ankle monitor that tracks his alcohol consumption.

He has until Friday to meet the two requirements or risk landing in jail.

The former basketball star faces legal issues after a drunk driving arrest in November.

Francis is also facing burglary charges in Florida.
