Cleveland’s WEWS-TV said Friday it had removed a false report from its website. The report said Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam — who is also majority owner of the Cleveland Browns — had been indicted. “An internal investigation is underway to determine how the erroneous report was posted,” the station says in a post.
Haslam “has never been charged in connection with the FBI’s ongoing investigation into fuel rebate fraud that came to light in April 2013 after the FBI and IRS raided the company’s corporate offices in Knoxville, Tenn.,” Evan MacDonald writes in The Plain Dealer.
