CLEVELAND - Former Cleveland Brown Reggie Rucker has agreed to let the government garnish $394 a month from his NFL pension.
NOW: Fed prosecutors confirm that former Brown #ReggieRucker is having $394/month garnished from NFL pension to repay charities he bilked.— Chris Tye (@TVTye) June 5, 2017
Rucker is still behind bars for stealing from charities he claimed to be helping for years.
He owes those charities over 100-thousand dollars, and agreed recently to this garnishment.
The U.S. Attorney’s office tells WKYC Channel 3's Chris Tye that a much larger sum will likely be repaid to Rucker’s charitable victims when his settlement with NFL over concussions is finalized. It is still unclear how much the league will pay Rucker for those injuries.
