Former NC State player Eric Leak under investigation

RALEIGH -- Former North Carolina State football player Eric Leak is under investigation by the federal government on suspicion of Medicaid fraud.

Multiple media outlets reported that documents filed in U.S. District Court in Durham state that Leak obtained nearly $9 million from Medicaid for his mental health business between 2012 and 2014 and moved more than $200,000 to his sports management company.

Four vehicles connected to Leak and his wife were included in a seizure warrant.

The documents show a 2013 Porsche worth more than $137,000 was purchased for former N.C. State basketball player C.J. Leslie.

N.C. State banned Leak from campus in 2013 to try to prevent improper contact with athletes.

Leak did not talk to reporters at his home Wednesday where agents removed at least four computer hard drives.
