A Volkswagen executive has been arrested by the FBI on charges of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. over diesel emissions, the New York Times reports

Oliver Schmidt is expected to be arraigned on Monday in Miami. The case is out of Detroit.

Schmidt, who led the automaker’s regulatory compliance office in the U.S. from 2014 to March 2015, is accused of fabricating data that suggested excess emissions were caused by technical problems, not cheating.

A Volkswagen spokeswoman said the automaker “continues to cooperate with the Department of Justice” but that “it would not be appropriate to comment on any ongoing investigations or to discuss personnel matters.”
