Jon Beason's accuser arrested with stolen watch
The man who accused Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason of assaulting him has been arrested.
Gregory Frye, who was ordered to pay Beason $1 last month for slander, was arrested at a martini bar Sunday and charged with being in possession of a stolen watch valued at $7,000.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Frye was arrested at 2:22 a.m. and charged with the misdemeanor. It’s just the latest in a long rap sheet against Frye, who brought Beason trouble for a short time. Frye had claimed he saw Beason doing cocaine, a charge no one corroborated.
