AEK chief arrested over unpaid taxes

ATHENS, Greece -- The chairman of the Greek soccer club AEK Athens has been arrested, with his team accused of not paying $219.5 million in taxes.

Andreas Dimitrelos was in police custody Thursday and is to testify before a magistrate Friday.

It was the latest high-profile arrest over taxes in a country reeling from economic problems. The club said the alleged offenses came before Dimitrelos became chairman last year. It said the matter was being settled in a restructuring procedure initiated by AEK under the country's bankruptcy code.

AEK is 11th in the 16-team Greek league.

Also this week, midfielder Giorgos Katidis was suspended from AEK after celebrating a goal with a Nazi-style salute. He also received a lifetime ban from the national team.
