URBANA, Ohio (AP) -Former Cincinnati Bengals fullback Pete Johnson has been accused of writing a bad check for $13,300 to buy a pickup truck, authorities said.
Johnson, 53, who played for the Bengals from 1977 to 1983, was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Champaign County Common Pleas Court on one count of passing bad checks and one count of grand theft of a motor vehicle.
Johnson took possession of the truck from an auto dealership in September, police said. A bank later notified the dealership that Johnson didn't have enough funds in his account when he wrote the check, police said.
Johnson's last known address is in Columbus, according to court records. A message seeking comment was left on his cell phone Friday.
A Champaign County grand jury indicted Johnson in December. Urbana is about 40 miles northwest of Columbus.
Johnson, who was part of four Big Ten championship teams while at Ohio State in the mid-1970s, played for the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins in 1984 and retired at the end of that season.
