An audio recording appears to link Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam to his truck stop company's fuel rebate scam.

The "Knoxville News Sentinel" reports the tape was played yesterday during the trial of the Pilot Flying J executives accused of defrauding trucking company customers. The newspaper says it was from a training session in which the fraud was taught. Haslam has not been charged and maintains he had no knowledge of the fraud scheme.
