This according to several news feeds. The Brown Stains are still just skid marks on the shorts of the NFL....

New Browns owner Haslam popped for fraud

The FBI and IRS allege new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam's travel center company Pilot Flying J engaged in a fraud scheme "for many years" to keep money owed to customers as gas rebates.
Documents filed by the FBI in court Thursday claim Haslam was aware of the fraud scheme, "committed by top sales officials" at his family business. They also allege Haslam was present for discussions about the fraudulent activities. According to the FBI and IRS, Pilot Flying J targeted companies that were "too unsophisticated to catch that their agreed-upon deal with Pilot was being changed to benefit Pilot without the knowledge of those customers." The NFL has long bragged about its thorough process for vetting prospective owners, but either missed something or didn't do its due diligence with Haslam, who is estimated to be worth $1.8 billion by Forbes. Haslam's brother Bill Haslam is the sitting governor of Tennessee. The league has declined comment.
