Fall Of An Icon – Rudy Ruettiger Accused Of Fraud By Feds

We all know the story of Rudy Ruettiger. It’s one of the best sports movies ever made (1993) but these days the real Rudy is investigated for fraud by the SEC.

Ruettiger paid $382,000 to resolve U.S. regulatory claims he defrauded investors of his sports drink, Rudy Nutrition, by producing fake sales stats.

Ruettiger and a dozen other suspects made over $11,000,000 in profits by artificially pumping up the stock of his sports drink. It also turns out that part of the movie never took place in real life.
