Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam says he’s working to repay trucking companies and restore the reputation of his Pilot Flying J business. Haslam spoke to trucking company executives at a seminar in Indianapolis this morning, answering questions screened by his lawyers about alleged fuel rebate fraud that’s the target of an IRS and FBI investigation. 

Haslam says about 250 trucking companies likely have been affected and he’s continuing to contact each one personally. He hopes to have refunds issued, with interest, by middle of July.  And, Haslam reiterated that he had no part in the alleged scheme.

More than a half-dozen civil lawsuits have been filed by trucking companies, which have hired former FBI director Louis Freeh to investigate their claims. No criminal charges have been filed.
