Brett DiBiase, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, has been charged as part of one of the biggest embezzlement schemes in Mississippi.
Authorities have charged Brett and five more people in a multi-million embezzlement scheme that included former Mississippi Welfare Director John Davis. According to a New York Times article, DiBiase allegedly was given funds to go to a drug treatment facility in Malibu that was earmarked for Mississippi's welfare programs. According to documents in the article, DiBiase was allegedly given the money as payment for drug abuse classes that he never taught.
Shad White, the state auditor, said it was perhaps the largest embezzlement scheme in the past 20 years. The arrests stemmed from an eight-month investigation into the misappropriation of funds from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, which the state welfare agency administers. Aside from Davis and Brett, four other people, Nancy New, Zack New, Anne McGrew and Latimer Smith were arrested.
Brett spent the majority of his wrestling career in FCW, WWE's developmental territory at the time, from 2008 to 2011. During his time in FCW, Brett won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship and wrestled a number of wrestlers who would go on to have big success in their wrestling careers from Dolph Ziggler to Sheamus to Seth Rollins and Xavier Woods to name a few.
Since then, Brett did not wrestle aside from a couple of matches that he had throughout the years.
