Attorney General Dustin McDaniel
said today he'd settled a lawsuit against Catherine Gray
, former head of the Arkansas Fire Protection Licensing Board
with the agreement to pay back $15,426 in unauthorized charges on a state credit card.
McDaniel sued Gray, of England, in September after getting a referral from the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee. The State Police are also investigating.
Gray had a state card for two years before it was suspended for suspected improper purchases. McDaniel's lawsuit said she used it to pay for gift cards, personal utility bills, personal car repairs, prescription medication, alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, dog food, pet supplies, clothing, movies, groceries and toiletries.
