Carlos Chavez, Bolivian FA president, arrested on corruption charges

Carlos Chavez was arrested after eight hours of questioning on Friday.

LA PAZ, Bolivia -- Police in Bolivia have arrested the president of the nation's football federation for alleged corruption.

The prosecutor's office issued a brief statement Friday on Carlos Chavez's arrest that offered no details beyond saying it was part of an "investigation of presumed corruption" in managing state resources.

Chavez was arrested after eight hours of questioning and sent to jail in Sucre, where the prosecutor's office is located.

The investigation into Chavez and other top figures in Bolivian football followed accusations by U.S. authorities in May of corruption among top leaders of FIFA, international football's governing body.

The coach of one club in Bolivia's football league accused Chavez of embezzling funds from the national federation.

Chavez said Friday morning as he submitted to questioning that there was no proof to the accusations.
