GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The University of Florida has fired a housing official arrested on suspicion of stealing more than $180,000.

The Gainesville Sun reports that the school sent its former senior director of housing and education Azfar Mian a termination letter on Monday. Mian was placed on administrative leave after his arrest Sept. 18.

Mian is charged with using his university credit card to buy thousands of dollars in personal household items, cell phones, internet service and other items.

UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes told the newspaper that of the five other employees placed on leave due to the investigation, one has been cleared and returned to work. Four others remain on leave.
