The wife of a former NFL and UCLA quarterback was arrested on Tuesday, Dec. 7, after it was found that she was stealing different types of designer goods from her employer and selling them online.

Christina McNown has been taken into custody following an investigation that was launched in October 2021 by police officers after her employer, known philanthropist Sydney Holland, reported that several of her personal goods started going missing in a span of a few months, according to WBZ News Radio.

McNown worked as Holland’s assistant and stylist for 12 years. Holland was concerned after noticing that a handful of her luxury belongings had gone missing, some even ending up on online selling platforms. She reported the thefts before she suspected that McNown, who had access to her things, could be responsible, the New York Post reported.

McNown was arrested and charged with four counts of grand theft and will be arraigned next year. Neither she nor her husband has yet to make a statement regarding the charges as of press time, including the possible motive for stealing such items from her employer.

Christina is married to former NFL quarterback Cade McNown, who last year was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He has also been inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 2017 as well as the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame for his impressive streak during his college football career.

Cade McNown is seen as a legend within the college football circuit, finishing as a Heisman Trophy finalist as well as a consensus All-American member, winning other sports awards in the process in 1998.

His NFL career is much less stellar, being chosen as the No. 12 overall in the 1999 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, spending two seasons with them before being traded to the Miami Dolphins and to the San Francisco 49ers.

He has not been active as a football player since 2003.
