A League One football club director has been charged by a United States grand jury of healthcare fraud amounting to $5.7m.
Michael Anderson has now stepped down from his role as vice-chairman of Gillingham Football Club.
The allegations involve a scam targeting a US government-backed programme for members and veterans of the armed forces and their families.
He could face up to 60 years in jail if convicted and have to repay the money.
The Kent club’s accounts show Mr Anderson invested large amounts of money in the team, and was still owed £433,000 in the latest figures from May 2016.
