A onetime state official and key witness in the Blago trial was arrested Friday afternoon for shoplifting.
The stolen items valued over $150, which categorizes the crime as a felony, according to Chicago Police.
Bedi testified against former Governor Rod Blagojevich at his summer trial. Bedi claimed that he attended a meeting with Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and businessman Raghu Nayak in October of 2008. At the meeting, Bedi said Nayak proposed raising a million dollars for Blagojevich, in exchange for Jackson's appointment to President Obama's former Senate Seat.
Bedi is due in court Saturday.
