Former Lion Foote Claims He Is Fraud Victim

DETROIT (CBSDetroit/AP) – Former Detroit Lion and Michigan Wolverine Larry Foote claims he is the victim of a scheme to defraud him out of more than $400,000.

In a lawsuit filed in Wayne County Circuit Court, Foote, now a Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, claims he was duped when he invested money with two defendants associated with a Dearborn Heights valet service.

The suit claims Foote was approached in 2010 by one of the defendants, who indicated he had recently acquired major valet contracts and needed an investor to provide capital.

Foote is a native of Detroit.
