CHICAGO (AP) - A former vice president at MillerCoors and seven others are accused of defrauding the company of at least $7 million.

According to a 20-count federal indictment filed in Chicago Tuesday, 58-year-old Dave Colletti, of Chicago, was charged with mail and wire fraud along with seven others.

According to prosecutors, Colletti worked with the seven others to submit false invoices that billed for fictitious promotional and marketing events. The indictment says the others named worked for entities that claimed to provide third-party vendor services.

A message left for Colletti’s attorney was not immediately returned.

Colletti had also been accused by MillerCoors last August in a civil lawsuit of defrauding the company.

In a statement, MillerCoors said the defendants’ actions are intolerable and inexcusable.
