FORMER NFLPA EMPLOYEE ARRESTED ON EMBEZZLING CHARGES
Published January 31, 1995
John Walker, a former researcher for the NFLPA, was arrested by the FBI on a charge of embezzling more than $50,000 of the union's funds. Walker was arrested around kickoff time on Super Bowl Sunday, although FBI Special Agent Daniel Bradley said the timing was "coincidental." The funds in question "came from fees for processing applications from sports agents seeking to be accredited by the [NFLPA] or have their accreditation renewed." NFLPA Asst Exec Dir Doug Allen confirmed last week that Walker was fired, but would not say why (AP/N.Y. TIMES, 1/31).
