 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Former Auburn point guard Varez Ward has been arrested for allegedly trying to fix games.
U.S. Attorney George Beck said that Ward was arrested Sunday on counts of bribery relating to a sports contest and conspiracy for allegedly trying to fix the point spread for the Tigers' game against Arkansas on Jan. 25, 2012.
A federal grand jury indictment last week of Ward was unsealed Tuesday. The one-page document did not list alleged co-conspirators but said the scheme continued after that game. Beck says Ward offered to pay teammates to participate in the point-shaving scheme.
Ward came off the bench in the 56-53 loss but crumpled to the floor after playing only 19 seconds with an apparent leg injury.
Auburn still covered the 9 1/2-point spread.
