Marcus Schrenker left his troubled money management business with a parachute, but it wasn't a golden one.
Federal authorities have charged the Indiana money manager with faking a distress call from the air and intentionally wrecking his plane.
U.S. Marshals spokesman Scott Wilson said the charges were filed against 38-year-old Marcus Schrenker Wednesday afternoon.
He says Schrenker is expected to appear in a Florida court later this week.
Authorities tracked Schrenker to a campground in north Florida Tuesday night after a three-day run.
They suspect he parachuted from his small plane in Alabama, then left it on autopilot to crash in Florida as part of a bid to stage his death amid mounting personal and professional problems.
