Former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Terry Long has been indicted for fraudulently securing loans for a chicken-processing plant that he eventually burned to the ground for insurance money.

Long, who played for Pittsburgh from 1984 to 1991, turned himself after the federal indictment was unsealed on Tuesday.

According to the eight-count indictment, Long, 45, provided the state with false documents to get more than $1 million in business loans, and also false bid documents to obtain a $75,000 grant to buy food processing equipment.

Several months after running into stiff resistance from neighbors who opposed plans to open a chicken slaughterhouse in the basement of the processing plant, Long set fire to his Value Added Foods Group, destroying it on Sept. 25, 2003, according to the indictment.
