SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Former Major League Baseball player Ted Lilly has been charged in California with three felonies related to insurance fraud.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune reported Friday (http://bit.ly/1L6bb1y ) that the charges stem from allegedly false insurance claims related to Lilly’s damaged recreational vehicle.

An investigation by the state Department of Insurance finds the RV sustained damage in a collision and Lilly sought an estimate from a body shop on March 19, 2014. The estimate was $4,600.

The agency says Lilly then bought insurance from Progressive on March 24 and claimed the damage on March 28.

Lilly’s lawyer, James Murphy, didn’t return a call for comment.

The 39-year-old left-hander was a two-time All-Star who pitched for Montreal, Oakland, Toronto, the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and the Dodgers.

He retired in 2013.
