The man who was behind the Wrestling for Autism fundraiser in April is now the focus of a police investigation.

James Raymond has been charged with writing a bad check.

A $5,000 check that went to the people who handled the promotions for the fundraiser bounced. After the check bounced, investigators found out that Raymond allegedly pocketed the money raised during the charity event instead of donating it.

A total of 600 people attended the Wrestling for Autism fundraiser.
