SEC tackles former NFL player in fraud case

Ex-Chicago Bears player accused of inflating stock prices

But the ex-National Football League (NFL) player’s enviable dance moves and rapping abilities won’t save him from the wrath of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which yesterday named him in a fraud case.

The SEC claims Gault was part of a scheme to inflate the stock prices of a heart-monitoring device company called Heart Tronics.
