Tangredi indicted on wire fraud, money laundering charges

Michael G. Tangredi — the son of a troubled former Nashville restaurateur — has been indicted on multiple charges of wire fraud and money laundering.

Tangredi, who appeared in U.S. District Court in Nashville on Wednesday, is charged with allegedly using an employee’s name to defraud American Express of $1 million. American Express sued Tangredi in 2008, at about the same time that multiple Italian restaurants owned by the Tangredi family closed.
