Central Michigan players, including No. 2 receiver Flory, charged in DVD theft

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Authorities have offered to reduce charges against a Central Michigan football player if he testifies against a former teammate in a retail fraud case.

Andrew Flory caught 32 passes for 384 yards last season, ranking him second among the Chippewas.

Citing court documents, The Morning Sun in Mount Pleasant reports that prosecutors would drop one of two second-degree retail fraud counts against Flory if he pleads guilty to one and marijuana possession.

He also would have to cooperate in the prosecution of Ryan Oruche. The case is linked to a recent theft of DVDs from a Walmart store.

Flory says he’s innocent. The Associated Press left messages for attorneys representing him and Oruche.

Flory of Miramar, Florida, has been suspended indefinitely by the team. Oruche quit.
