LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says the former executive director of the Arkansas Fire Protection Licensing Board has repaid the state more than $15,000 for unauthorized purchases made on a state charge card.

McDaniel filed a civil suit against Catherine Gray in September. The lawsuit accused Gray of using a state purchasing card on gift cards, personal utility bills, personal car repairs, prescription medication, alcohol, cigarettes, dog food and other items.

McDaniel said Wednesday that Gray has paid restitution of $15,426. He says his office has agreed to seek the dismissal of the lawsuit because of the reimbursement.

Gray resigned her post in April.

The fire board monitors the servicing and installation of fire extinguishers, fixed fire-suppression systems and fire sprinkler systems and registers and licenses businesses that provide such services.
