Soccer Player Arrested in Scandal

The first player was arrested on Friday in connection with the match-fixing scandal in German soccer. The judge leading the investigation issued an arrest warrant for Steffen Karl of the third division team Chemnitzer FC. He faces fraud and organized crime charges, state prosecutors in Berlin said. Karl is suspected of helping to fix the results of a May 2004 match between SC Paderborn and Chemnitz. Two referees have already been arrested in the worst scandal to hit German soccer in over 30 years.
