San Antonio Scorpions midfielder Josue Soto was suspended, pending an investigation by the North American Soccer League, amid allegations he snitched on the NASL team, providing "strategic information" to former teammates around the league, according to the San Antonio Express-News sources.

The NASL issued a statement to the San Antonio Express-News that it was investigating the case:

“The NASL was made aware of potential misconduct by San Antonio Scorpions midfielder Josue Soto. The league has commenced an investigation and the player has been suspended from all team activities pending the outcome of the investigation."
