LITTLE ROCK - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel is suing the former executive director of the Arkansas Fire Protection Licensing Board, alleging she used a state charge card to make unauthorized purchases.

Thursday's lawsuit filed in Pulaski County Circuit Court also alleges Catherine Gray wrongly obtained reimbursements for personal expenses.

It was unclear whether Gray had an attorney.

According to the lawsuit, Gray received a purchasing card to charge purchases related to official state business.

Gray accrued a total of $40,431 on the card between 2012 and 2014 - when it was suspended by officials after suspecting it was used for unauthorized purchases.

The suit also alleges Gray made $15,426 in unauthorized purchases on the card, including payments for gift cards, personal utility bills, personal car repairs, prescription medication and alcohol, among other purchases.
