Ex-Jet Buster Skrine Arrested For Alleged Fraud

Buster Skrine played on the New York Jets from 2015-2018, overall a 10 year NFL career would last see him play in 2021.

Now 34-years-old Skrine has popped in the headlines once again, but for all the bad reasons. The ex-NFL DB was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly defrauding banks across Canada.

Authorities say he fraudulently obtained more than 100K from several banks throughout the country.

The Durham Regional Police Service said that Skrine would identify himself as a retired NFL player, open bank accounts with fraudulent checks, and then obtain a portion of the money before the check cleared.

Skrine was arrested at the Pearson International Airport on Wednesday as he attempted to travel back to the United States. He has since been hit with 14 charges, including fraud.
