Fired Idabel Fire Chief Andrew Young was indicted Thursday on seven felony counts of making a fictitious claim for payment.
The state's multicounty grand jury accused Young, 47, of lying on time sheets seven times between September 2010 and February 2012.
Young claimed in the time sheets to be on duty for the city at times when he actually was officiating school sporting events outside of Idabel, grand jurors reported.
The grand jury issued the indictment in Oklahoma City. Young was fired last year.
The maximum punishment for making a fictitious claim is two years in prison and a $10,000 fine. A message left on Young's cellphone seeking comment was not immediately returned.
