The Milwaukee man who claimed that he had signed a contract with the Toronto Blue Jays has now been arrested on charges of fraud.
Milwaukee Police executed a search warrant on Walton’s home Monday, June 4th and took Walton into custody. A computer, cell phone and an autographed baseball bat were confiscated from his residence. The autograph has yet to be authenticated.
Walton allegedly defrauded as many as 3 sports agencies and possibly others. Travis Bell of the Seven Bridges Agency in California and Collin Cummins of the Red Eye Sports Agency in Canada were 2 of the 3 agencies listed in the complaint.
Walton reportedly gave these agencies a fake contract as proof that he ha actually signed to the Blue Jays organization. In return, these agencies provided Walton with funds to help further his career in anticipation of future representation.
