GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Nearly a year after being arrested on home repair fraud, one Gulfport businessman hopes to clear his name.

In April of last year, George Bush was one of 13 contractors arrested on home repair fraud.

Monday, a grand jury dismissed the case against the former club owner. The jury says there was not enough evidence to support the claim.

Bush says he lost a lot of business as a result of the false accusations. Now he hopes his reputation will be restored.

In the meantime, George Bush has filed a civil suit against the homeowner.
