Newsnet5 report claiming Haslam indictment posted in error

No basis for report claiming fraud

CLEVELAND - A report erroneously posted on earlier Friday claiming Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam had been indicted is inaccurate and has been removed from the station's website.

An internal investigation is underway to determine how the erroneous report was posted.

Jimmy Haslam has never been charged with any crimes related to an ongoing FBI investigation into alleged fuel rebate fraud and has consistently denied having any knowledge of the alleged fraud.
