Indiana broadcaster and former Hooiser basketball player Todd Leary has been arrested in connection with a big-money real estate title scheme.

The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne reports that the 39-year-old Leary faces 17 felony charges.

Leary once worked for former title insurance broker Joseph Garretson, who pleaded guilty this week in Allen Superior Court to conversion or misappropriation of title insurance escrow funds, corrupt business influence and unlawful loan origination activities in a scheme that court documents say totaled $2.7 million in losses.
Leary played in Bloomington from 1989-94 and was part of the Hooisers' 1992 Final Four run. He now does the color for radio broadcasts.

Court documents reveal that Leary's former teammate, Brain Evans, cooperated with investigators to help uncover the scheme.

Sounds like he provided a little 'color commentating' on real estate deals too! bum.

lots of former pro ball players doing dirty things makes you wonder if they did things while playing.
