Ex-FIFA vice president Warner arrested, freed on $2.5M bail

FILE - In this Thursday, June 2, 2011 file photo, suspended FIFA executive Jack Warner gestures during a news conference held shortly after his arrival at the airport in Port-of-Spain, in his native Trinidad and Tobago. Organizers of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar have distanced themselves from fresh allegations of corruption surrounding the Gulf nation's winning bid for the tournament in 2010. The Tuesday March 18, 2014 edition of British newspaper The Daily Telegraph alleges it has evidence that former FIFA vice president Jack Warner and his family were paid almost $2 million from a company controlled by Mohamed Bin Hammam, a Qatari who used to be an executive committee member of world football's governing body.

Former FIFA vice president Jack Warner turned himself in to Trinidad police shortly after they issued an arrest warrant at the request of U.S. authorities.
