Police Claim Toledo Football Player Recruited Teammates in Point Shaving Scam

Court documents filed in Detroit say a former University of Toledo football player recruited his teammates and basketball players at the school to take part in a point-shaving scam.

According to the documents filed Tuesday, Adam Cuomo admitted that he gave information about upcoming games to a Detroit-area gambler. Cuomo was a little-used running back at Toledo.

Investigators say Cuomo told them he initiated the scheme with the Detroit gambler and that they both bet on Toledo games.

The FBI has been looking into point shaving at Toledo over the past four years. They say the scam began in 2003 and continued until 2006.

Until now, only two other former players at the school have been linked to the allegations.
