Former Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association, Keyon Dooling, was detained on Wednesday by federal authorities.

Dooling’s arrest adds to a criminal case in which 18 former NBA players were charged with stealing from the league’s health and welfare benefit plan and illegally pocketing millions of dollars.

The amended indictment added Keyon Dooling to the case, which was first filed in October and revealed that a number of former NBA players had collectively received $2.5 million from the benefit plan.
