The Charlotte Observer is reporting that the indictment says Henderson’s flaunted his newfound wealth via his Facebook page as he frequently posted himself with wads of cash in his hands or on the floor around him and other evidence of his new luxurious lifestyle.

Henderson is accused of using the money to pay for personal expenses, including a $20,000 down payment on a 2019 Mercedes-Benz.
