Former Cheyenne-Arapaho chair charged with theft

The former chairman of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma has been charged with theft of a luxury car.

Bill Blind reportedly bought the 2002 Lincoln Town Car with tribal funds. He was still in possession of the vehicle despite losing his bid for re-election earlier this year.

Blind returned the car last Friday at his arraignment in tribal court and will be back in court in two weeks.
