Jeremy Mayfield indicted again
Monday, Feb. 27, 2012
HUDSON, N.C. Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has been indicted in Caldwell County on four counts of felony larceny, one week after he was indicted in neighboring Catawba County.
A grand jury on Monday indicted the 42-year-old Mayfield in connection with the theft of trailers and furniture.
Mayfield was indicted in Catawba County on three counts of possessing property stolen from businesses, and a fourth charge of obtaining property by false pretense.
It's the latest in a series of troubles for Mayfield. He was suspended from NASCAR after failing a random drug test at Richmond in May 2009. He was in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond last month to argue his lawsuit seeking reinstatement as a NASCAR driver should be heard by the courts.
