(CARMEL) - The former CEO of American Senior Communities, James Burkhart, was arrested Wednesday morning.

Agents with the FBI raided his house in Carmel, Indiana in September 2015.

American Senior Communities operates 94 nursing homes throughout Indiana and Kentucky.

Burkhart is being represented by attorney Larry Mackey, a former federal prosecutor best known for his involvement in the Timothy McVeigh case.

Mackey has not released a formal statement on the arrest.

A few days after the FBI raided Burkhart's house, American Senior Communities fired him.

Previously, Burkhart was a manager at Ernst & Young for six years, a service company that helps other companies run their business, according to Bloomberg Business. He has worked in the senior healthcare industry for more than 20 years.

In 2010, American Senior Communities agreed to pay $376,432 to the State of Indiana and the federal government to settle allegations it submitted ineligible bills to Medicaid for work performed by employees excluded

Authorities haven't released what Burkhart's preliminary charges are.
