FBI's Cam Newton Probe Expands to Auburn Booster

11/17/2010 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The FBI investigation into the cash for Cam Newton scandal now involves a guy who gave more than $1 million to Auburn University ... and was recently arrested in a bribery sting.

Cam Newton Scandal Investigation
According to sources connected to the probe ... FBI agents looking into the Newton recruiting controversy are also asking about Milton McGregor -- a dog track owner arrested last month for allegedly bribing Alabama politicians to vote pro gambling.

We're told agents asked someone connected to the Newton case if he was familiar with McGregor or the bribery scandal.

It's unclear what, if any, direct connection McGregor has to Newton. Back in 2008, McGregor did donate a million bucks toward construction of a new arena at Auburn.

McGregor did not return a call for comment.

UPDATE 4:00PM PST: Milton McGregor's attorney tells TMZ his client has "never had any contact – direct or indirect – with Cam Newton, Cecil Newton, Cam’s father; Kenny Rogers or anyone purporting to represent Cam Newton."  He also says McGregor has never compensated student athletes at Auburn or any other school.

No Buck Fama...it means football means way too much to you retards (Auburn fans). I think it sucks that any of this has (potentially) happened. But unlike Auburn fans, I don't have my head in the sand screaming war eagle. There are more important things in life than football. I hope this crap passes soon cause I am tired of hearing about it.

MidnightTOker - you should get your facts straight before making dumb comments. Newton was never accused of stealing a laptop. He bought a laptop that was stolen, but he did not steal the laptop. Shady, yes. Illegal, maybe. The same as stealing? No.

Your other two charges were never proven, but don't let facts get in your way.

I laugh at the people who talk about how there are so many things more important than this story, yet take time to comment on it. Hilarious.

Even funnier, a person who takes time to set up an account on THIS particular website and talk about important things. Really? on TMZ? That's too funny! I challenge you to find anything that really matters on this site. It's entertaining gossip.

Bama Mom - Auburn was the AP National Champion in 1957, but don't let an actual fact get in the way of a good old Bammer rant! Bama has 8 or 9 legitimate championships. If Auburn counted them the way Bama does, they would have 8 or 9.

BTW, I am a life long Bama fan who dreamed of playing for the Bear and I pull for the Tide every game but that one in November.

DaleC~ INCORRECT statement: Auburn Univeristy has NEVER had a Championship. Alabama Polytenic Institue did in 1957. They did not have a championship game. They went undeafeated and was named National Championship by AP poll and other sources. Auburn University has NEVER won a Championship. I have my facts straight. BTW, there is NO way a true Bama fan is going to pull for Auburn against Bama!!!!!!!!!

Every time Auburn starts to challenge the turds, something like this arises. It's no surprise to me that it started OR where it originated from. Auburn people who've been around awhile and seen a few things know this very well. They (Bammer) can't stand equal footing or real competition within state. That's exactly why they fought our moving our home games to Auburn where they wouldn't have preferential treatment in Bamaham and Pat Dye knew this having coached there and knowing how they think.
