Ex-NFL player, mother indicted for theft charges in New Jersey
NEWARK, NJ -- New Jersey authorities say former NFL player Irving Fryar has been indicted on theft charges.
Acting Attorney General John Hoffman announced Wednesday that Fryar and his mother, Allene McGhee, are charged with conspiring to steal more than $690,000. Prosecutors say the pair engaged in a "sophisticated mortgage fraud scam" by allegedly having McGhee obtain five loans on her home within a six-day period.
The 51-year-old Fryar lives in Springfield, N.J., and is the pastor of a church he founded. He's also the head coach of the Robbinsville High School football team. His 72-year-old mother lives in Willingboro.
It's not clear whether the pair have attorneys. The Associated Press left messages for Fryar at the church and school.
The former wide receiver played for four NFL teams between 1984 and 2000, including the Patriots and Eagles
