Man accused of using Favre's credit card

PHOENIX (Jan. 12, 2006) -- A Phoenix man was arrested after allegedly using a credit card account belonging to Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre more than 40 times, authorities said.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office said William J. Joachim, 35, was arrested on four felony charges of theft, fraud schemes, aggravated taking the identity of another and misconduct involving weapons.

Two other men were arrested in the case and booked into the Maricopa County jail on forgery charges.

Arizona authorities received information from the NFL last month that Favre's credit card account had been compromised and more than 40 unauthorized transactions were made in Maricopa County.

The charges totaled more than $10,000, according to authorities.
