NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The former president of a Tennessee company owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam is charged along with seven others with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud.

Mark Hazelwood left Pilot Flying J in 2014, a year after the FBI raided the truck stop chain's Knoxville headquarters. The federal indictment unsealed on Tuesday accuses eight former employees of participating in a scheme to cheat customers out of promised rebates and discounts.

Hazelwood faces an additional charge of witness tampering. Former vice president of national accounts Scott "Scooter" Wombold faces an additional charge of making false statements.

Pilot has agreed to pay out nearly $85 million to settle claims in a class-action lawsuit with 5,500 trucking companies.
