Sports radio personality Craig Carton has spoken out on Twitter, vowing to defeat fraud charges and return "stronger than ever."

NEW YORK — Sports radio personality Craig Carton has spoken out on Twitter, vowing to defeat fraud charges and return "stronger than ever."

The host of WFAN's "Boomer and Carton" show posted a statement on the social media platform Tuesday.

He says it's been "incredibly hard" to be silent since his arrest a week ago amid claims that he and others misappropriated at least $5.6 million from two investors. Carton says his fight has only just begun and insists he'll be proved not guilty.

Federal authorities say Carton began committing fraud in 2016 to pay off gambling debts.

After Carton posted his statement, plenty of fans wrote notes of support in response.

But some were more skeptical, posting humorous video clips to support their sentiments or, as one put it: "He's done."
