Ex-'Survivor' contestant charged with larceny in Virginia
DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - A former "survivor" candidate was charged with grand theft in Virginia, authorities said.
Jonny Fairplay, who became known on the show in 2003 for staging a lie that his grandmother had died, was charged after a silver necklace and furniture were removed from a residence, the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office said. Fairplay's mother, Patsy Terry Hall, 68, reported the Danville Register & Bee on Wednesday.
The sheriff's office said Fairplay's aunt made the complaint, according to WSET TV. The sheriff's officials would not tell who lived at home, according to Register & Bee.
Fairplay and Hall, 46, reported to a government office on Friday after Danville police served them arrest warrants, a police spokesman told the newspaper.
“I (we) have been wrongly charged by a family member. I welcome the opportunity to defend myself (and my mother), "Fairplay wrote in a message to The Associated Press on Wednesday night.
