A former Olympic speedskater athlete has been accused of illegally receiving millions of dollars in coronavirus assistance and investing in a film about the killer Ted Bundy, authorities said Thursday.

Allison Baver, 41, has been charged with eight counts of making a false bank statement and one count of money laundering, the U.S. Attorney General's Office in Utah said in a statement.

Baver won a bronze medal in the women's 3000m relay at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, a victory that lasted about a year with a broken ankle and a broken leg at the World Cup in Bulgaria.

He later started Allison Baver Entertainment, a company that claims to empower "viewers, creators and entrepreneurs to achieve greatness" in film and television.

In a lawsuit filed on Wednesday, authorities said Baver applied for eight Payroll Protection Program funding from two banks last year claiming the company was earning about $ 4 million a month.

In other applications he said the company had 105 employees, according to the lawsuit. In others he said there were 430.

The company was unemployed and did not have a monthly salary, the court heard.

On May 11, 2020, one of the banks, Meridian, sponsored Allison Baver Entertainment with a $ 10 million loan, the lawsuit said. Two months later, the document states, he transferred $ 150,000 to the production company "Nobody's God," a film released in August about a serial killer Bundy starring Elijah Wood.

It is unclear whether Baver has a lawyer. Court records do not include one in the list. His company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A spokesman for the film also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Baver's indictment is scheduled for January 18.
