Mayfield indicted on larceny charges


HUDSON, N.C. (AP) -- Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has
been indicted in Caldwell County on four counts of felony larceny,
one week after he was indicted in neighboring Catawba County.

A grand jury on Monday indicted the 42-year-old Mayfield in
connection with the theft of trailers and furniture.

Mayfield was indicted in Catawba County on three counts of
possessing property stolen from businesses, and a fourth charge of
obtaining property by false pretense.

It's the latest in a series of troubles for Mayfield. He was
suspended from NASCAR after failing a random drug test at Richmond
in May 2009. He was in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in
Richmond last month to argue his lawsuit seeking reinstatement as a
NASCAR driver should be heard by the courts.
