COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a Byrdstown man has been charged with stealing thousands of dollars from a Disabled American Veterans fund.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says 65-year-old Glen Williams has been indicted by a Pickett County grand jury on a charge of theft over $60,000. He was arrested at his home Wednesday and was booked on $100,000 bond.

The TBI says agents began investigating a report of missing funds from the Honor Guard financial account of the Hull-York chapter of the Disabled American Veterans in Byrdstown on Aug. 11. Investigators say Williams, a former Disabled American Veterans commander, began stealing money from the account in December 2013.
