Chris Gatling has been arrested on fraud charges. The former NBA player met a woman on a dating site who owned a fitness studio. Gatling allegedly convinced the woman to run false credit card charges using numbers he attained through online businesses. The fitness studio owner fronted Gatling 90% of the cash and ended up $90,000 in debt and had to close her business.
Gatling was arrested – while meeting with his probation officer – and charged with fraud, aggravated identity theft and forgery. Gatling was caught squatting in someone’s home and trying to rent it on Craig’s List back in 2013.
