Lions' Marion Charged with Insurance Fraud
Marion, who was characterized by new defensive coordinator Dick Jauron as a "character guy," could receive up to twenty years in prison if he is convicted on the charges of insurance fraud, a fifteen year felony and grand theft auto, a five-year felony.
Marion turned himself into Plantation, FL. authorities yesterday. He has denied all charges.
Police claim that Marion arranged to have his 2002 customized Chevy conversion van stolen for insurance purposes. They further claim that Marion received a $54,000 settlement check from the insurance company for the van, they claim he arranged to have stolen, and which was recovered in an Albany, NY. chop shop.
Marion, for his part, claimed that he left the vehicle with a friend while he went to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. When he returned, he said that the vehicle was gone when he returned. He then filed a claim with the Insurance company.
Detroit Lions officials did not return requests for comment.
Lions spokesman Bill Keenist confirmed that the team was aware of the allegations, but would have no comment.
