Ole Miss radio manager released

The University of Mississippi has replaced the manager of the campus radio station because he is not a student.

William East was arrested this past week for failing to appear in the Lafayette County Circuit Court on two separate dates on a charge of credit card fraud.

It was then, Ole Miss officials found East had last enrolled as a student in May 2006.

East had worked at Rebel Radio in various capacities since 2004. He became station manager this spring - two years after he had last been a registered student.

An indictment alleges East for fraudulently charging about $8,000 to a credit card that didn't belong to him.

East was being held in the county jail without bond pending an initial court appearance.
