Authorities claim Labeaud arranged to intentionally crash a 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche owned by Thomas into a tractor-trailer owned by an Arkansas trucking company. After the collision, Labeaud is said to have quickly exited the vehicle to switch seats with Thomas, so it would appear she had been driving at the time of the crash.

"Thomas, Wade, Williams, and Young contacted the New Orleans Police Department ("NOPD") and falsely reported that Thomas had been the driver of the Avalanche and that the traitor-trailer had struck her vehicle," says the U.S. Attorney's Office Eastern District of Louisiana, in a press release related to the indictment.

The indictment goes on to allege that an unnamed attorney was involved in orchestrating and coordinating the scheme with Labeaud. The lawyer allegedly paid Labeaud $7,500 on the day of the staged accident. Later, the attorney allegedly demanded remuneration of $1,000,000 to settle fraudulent lawsuits related to the "accident," which involved at least three of the co-defendants. They were apparently settled for $7,500 each about a year later.

Labeaud was reportedly a plaintiff in several earlier collisions with trucks. He was arrested by FBI special agents Thursday, and his four co-defendants were ordered to appear for arraignment.

The federally indicted defendants are each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and five counts of wire fraud. The conspiracy charge carries a possible jail term of five years, and the wire fraud charges are punishable by up to 20 years behind bars. Additionally, they could be given five years of supervised release and the possibility of being fined up to $250,000 per count after release from prison. A court date has not yet been announced.
