Ernie Haire III arrested on contempt charge in alimony case

TAMPA — Ernest Haire III, former president and co-owner of Ernie Haire Ford, has been jailed on a contempt of court charge, accused of not paying alimony.

According to a booking report, Haire must pay $7,000 or spend five months and 29 days in jail for nonpayment of alimony to ex-wife Tracy Hendershot.

He also owes attorney's fees, the arrest report says.

Hillsborough County sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said the warrant was obtained from the court by Hendershot's attorneys.

Lawyers for both sides could not be reached early Wednesday.

Haire, 54, was arrested Tuesday afternoon at Avila Golf and Country Club, according to a report. Haire lives in the Avila subdivision.

Ernie Haire Ford was sold at auction last August to a Tampa Saab and Jaguar dealership with roots in Michigan.
