Jon Beason accuser arrested in Cornelius

Greg Frye, the Huntersville man who sued Panthers linebacker Jon Beason for allegedly punching him in the face at a strip club, was arrested early this morning in Cornelius on a charge of possession of stolen property.

Frye, 31, was arrested at 2:22 a.m. on the misdemeanor charge, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office web site.

It is the latest arrest for Frye, whose lengthy rap sheet was brought up in the Beason civil trial last month.

Frye accused Beason of fracturing his nasal cavity at the Uptown Cabaret in November 2009 after Frye told Panthers tight end Dante Rosario he had seen Beason snorting cocaine at a party on Lake Norman a few months earlier.

Beason testified he has never used cocaine. He told the jury he wanted to hit Frye, but a friend grabbed his arm before he could.

The jury sided with Beason and determined Frye had slandered the Pro-Bowl linebacker. Beason was awarded $1, the amount he requested.
