Leigh Steinberg -- the sports agent who's repped Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Aikman and Steve Young -- is a wanted man for skipping a court hearing involving an alleged $1.4 million in unpaid rent.
The bench warrant was issued today in Orange County because Steinberg missed his court date last week. According to documents, the super agent inspiration for "Jerry Maguire" owes a real estate company more than a mil for office space in Newport Beach, CA.
The company claims Steinberg stopped paying his lease back in 2009 -- and says it has been next to impossible to serve him with a subpoena because he's constantly surrounded by bodyguards.
