Alabama’s Air Force recruiter was arrested on Friday, the first time in six years the recruiter has been arrested.
According to a statement released by Alabama on Friday afternoon, Lt.
Gen. David L. Wylie was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Birmingham.
He was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, two counts of conspiracy and one count each of wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
According a statement from the Alabama Department of Public Safety, the FBI was assisting with the investigation.
Alabama is the sixth state to be linked to Lylie.
In January, the state charged a second Alabama recruiter with wire fraud after a different former recruit committed suicide.
Lylie has been in the air force for more than four decades.
He has been a special operations instructor for more years than most other military recruiters.
He is also a former Air Force fighter pilot.
Alabama is the top-ranked air force school in the nation.
It has a total of 1,400 cadets enrolled.
