North American Football League chairman, wife arrested in Murfreesboro
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The chairman of a football league that never played a game was arrested Monday in Murfreesboro, along with his wife.
Christoper White, 46, and Tracy White, 47, were taken into custody on felony charges from Florida stemming from the North American Football League, which the Whites allegedly claimed to be creating.
The NAFL was supposed to open its inaugural season in 2016 with eight teams playing a spring schedule with expansion plans to 16 teams throughout the U.S. One of the teams, the Memphis Kings, was to be based in Tennessee.
League play did not begin in 2016 and no further announcements have been made as to a start date.
