College Hockey:
Charges Against McLeod Could Be Dropped

— Bruce McLeod’s three counts of felony theft will be dropped given good behavior, the AP reported Thursday.

McLeod, former Minnesota-Duluth athletic director and WCHA chairman, was charged with three counts of felony theft in relation to $18,000 in misappropriated funds on six checks. Five of the six checks were ruled inadmissible due to a statute of limitations.

Charges for the remaining check, in the amount of $6,000 and written from the checking account of the golf and tennis programs, will be dropped provided McLeod enters a program for first-time offenders, as ruled by a St. Louis County District judge on Wednesday, October 16.

McLeod resigned from his post as athletic director as an independent audit was being conducted on the financial records of Minnesota-Duluth in late August.
