The former player, who once scammed a convicted scammer, has been charged with a new case of insurance fraud because of this AFC championship ring:

According to KTSP, a Minneapolis and St. Paul TV station, former Buffalo offensive lineman, Brent Griffith has been charged with felony insurance fraud after he claimed somebody stole his 1990 AFC Championship ring.

Griffith stated that the AFC championship ring was stolen during a plane flight in 2013, and then he made a $5,000 insurance claim. But he was later spotted wearing the championship ring on a Facebook picture.

Griffith’s charges occurred because his ex-wife called the insurance company to inform them, saying he lied about the championship ring being stolen and that he continued to wear it.

In March, investigators searched his home but did not find the championship ring. He’s due in court July 11, and his lawyer issued a statement saying he was innocent of this charge.

Griffith was a seventh-round pick of the Bills out of Minnesota-Duluth, and he spent just the one year with the Bills. After, he returned to Minnesota and eventually worked as a police officer in Eden Prarie, and as a security guard for the Minnesota Vikings. During that time, he was charged with fraudulently obtaining credit cards in the name of then-Vikings running back Michael Bennett.

Bennett is having his own troubles as he was recently sentenced to five years for burglary and identity theft, after stealing documents of his girlfriend’s parents to obtain $225,000 in loans.

Griffith was also accused in the theft of nearly 1,500 football game tickets, and when authorities searched his work locker, they found personal information belonging to several football players.
