Former San Diego Charger and New Orleans Saint Jeffrey Lynn Walker was the focus of an FBI press release this week. That's always good, right?!

According to the indictment, WALKER, a former NFL football player, has been involved in a scheme to defraud investors located in Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, and Arizona out of millions of dollars.


Oops, wrong.

The indictment alleges that WALKER sold shares in Charter Resources International and executed joint venture agreements between companies, in which he held a controlling interest, and investors to share in profits to be generated from the sale of estate homes, town homes and patio homes in the China resort.


Um, who isn't interested in Chinese patio homes?

The indictment states that WALKER caused investors to make interstate bank wire transfers and, as part of the scheme, WALKER then deposited investor funds into Sterling Group Holdings, Inc.'s bank account and converted portions of those funds to his own personal use and benefit, purchasing four-wheelers, a luxury conversion van, and a Hummer H-2 vehicle.

Wish it was you, U.S. Rep. Runyan.
