ONTARIO, Canada (WJW) – Former Cleveland Browns player Daryl “Buster” Skrine faces multiple fraud charges.

Investigators say he did this all over Canada, withdrawing more than $100,000 in cash.
The 34-year-old Georgia resident was arrested Wednesday night at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Skrine was drafted by the Browns and with the team from 2011 to 2014. Most recently, he played for the Tennessee Titans in 2021.
He announced his retirement in the summer of 2022.
