IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have arrested a former Coralville lawyer who had been on the run from the FBI since 2010 when he was indicted on mail and tax fraud charges.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports Dennis A. Bjorklund was listed on the FBI's most wanted list for white-collar crimes.

Federal court documents say he was arrested last week in Colorado. Bjorklund will be extradited to Iowa, and his case will be transferred back to the Southern District of Iowa court.

Bjorklund is accused of defrauding his clients in drunken-driving cases by recommending they make contributions to a fake charity he established. He told clients a donation would reflect well on their character and likely result in a lighter sentence in court.

A message left with Bjorklund's public defender wasn't immediately returned.
