Will they make this into a movie?

The charges against Victor Jung, former treasurer of NBC Universal, have the makings of one (at least an episode of "Law & Order"). Jung is accused stealing more than $800,000 - some of which, according to prosecutors, he used for private flights to Miami, Antigua and the Turks and Caicos Islands. The indictment says that Jung, who had been responsible for collections and oversight of NBC Universal's bank accounts, moved money into the accounts of an unauthorized company he had set up. Jung, who is 34, worked out of NBC Universal's offices in Manahattan. The NY tabs will be all over this one. AP
