TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say former University of Alabama cheerleading coach Debbie Greenwell has been arrested and charged with first-degree theft of property and using her position for personal gain.
Court records indicate that Greenwell was indicted Tuesday.
The Tuscaloosa News reports that she was arrested Friday and released on a $25,000 bond.
Greenwell could not be reached by phone at her home Friday, and it wasn't known whether she has an attorney in the case.
Greenwell recently filed a civil lawsuit accusing the University of Alabama's Board of Trustees, UA President Robert Witt, Director of Athletics Mal Moore and Assistant Director of Athletics Dave Hart of firing her without just cause.
Greenwell, a UA-cheerleader in the 1970s and coordinator of spirit squads since 1987, was dismissed Feb. 2, 2009.
