Freddie Mitchell Facing Tax Fraud Charges

“FredEx”.  “The People’s Champion”.  “First Down Freddie”.  These are all monikers used when referring to former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell.  You can now add to that list “potential felon”.  Mitchell is facing charges in a tax fraud case that alleges he recruited athletes to receive false tax returns.  The charges have been filed in the state of Florida and name Mitchell, as well as Jamie Russ-Walls and Richard Walls in the indictment.

The indictment alleges that a professional athlete (only referred to as A.G.) paid a firm to which Mitchell was connected to prepare his taxes.  From that point, the Walls’ were to purportedly file false federal tax returns, who ultimately claimed refunds that ranged from $170,000 to $1.9 million.

From the time he entered the NFL, Mitchell has occasionally popped up in the headlines, but it was usually for his quirky behavior or self-proclaimed nicknames.  The last time we heard from him he was participating in a dating show on the Bravo television network.  This time, however, the flamboyant former wide receiver could find himself in a heap of trouble if he is convicted in his role as recruiter for the Walls’.

  1. Wasn’t Lenny Dykstra doing his books for him for Coke/Crack on the side..

  2. @Freddy Mitchell, It is about time for you to get a 9am- 5pm job since you aren’t capable of leading others to perform work ————

  3. He is nothing but a moocher – shady, shady, shady! Hopefully, this will be a wake up call!

  4. How stupid do you have to be, to try & rip off the IRS! He might be the biggest idiot, on Earth. Another stupid athlete thinking he is invincible & untouchable.

  5. This is just why I won’t let big homie from aroung the way do my taxes…lol…

  6. Don’r worry Freddie you and T.O. can always team up for a Bryant Gumble exclusive on how McNabb is somehow to blame for this as well. “If he was more accurate”; “if he didn’t smile so much”…bla, blah,blh…

    Pathetic

  7. Is he being charged for fraud for taxes, or his NFL career? LMFBO!

  8. coldbrewski is right! T.O. and Freddie are both trouble makers. Freddie Mitchell blackballed himself. When he ran his mouth about Bellichick and Rodney Harrison, that sealed his NFL fate. Bellichick is one of the most powerful men in football and he is someone you do not want to piss off. Also he ran his mouth about McNabb and the Super Bowl. Let’s time I checked the tape, right before halftime, McNabb threw him a pass in field goal range and Freddie came up lame. As a matter of fact something similar happened in the con champs vs the Rams in 2001-02. Maybe Freddie will only get 4 years 26 months! Could not happen to a better person and what about the drugs that were allegedly mailed to his grandmother’s house. Maybe Philadelphia radio can hire Freddie as a behind bars analyst.
