NFL's Willie Gault -- I'M NOT A CROOK ... Beats Wrap In Alleged Heart Device Scheme

Exclusive Details

Ex-NFL speedster Willie Gault is PUMPED UP ... because a jury just found he's not guilty in an alleged scheme to blow up the stock price of his heart device company. 

After he hung up his cleats, Fast Willie became the CEO of Heart Tronics (which makes heart monitoring devices) ... and was accused of defrauding investors in a scheme to inflate the price of the company so he could cash in. 

But moments ago, a jury in Santa Ana, CA found that Gault is no fraud -- and didn't really do anything wrong ... other than making a few sloppy technical mistakes. 

"It’s been 4 years of a lot of pain and anguish," Gault tells TMZ Sports ... "I always said I didn't take anything, and I didn’t, and now it’s proven."
