Gunselman in more trouble, this time for environmental allegations

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Once again Lubbock businessman Jeffrey Gunselman, 30, CEO of Absolute Fuels, has legal trouble - this time with state regulators.  Staffers with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality recommend that Gunselman's company pay a penalty of $8,750 for environmental violations. 

Commissioners will take up the issue at their meeting on September 22 in Austin.  Official TCEQ documents say Absolute Fuels owns a property at 3819 Idalou Road, which appears to be an abandoned gas station.  TCEQ records say in October of 2011 underground fuel storage tanks on the property were in violation of state law.  The tanks had not been removed or properly maintained. 

The official records say, "Human health or the environment will or could be exposed to pollutants which would exceed levels that are protective of human health or environmental receptors as a result of the violation."

TCEQ staffers are asking the Commission for a default order against the company because it did not respond to the allegations back in 2011 and again in April of this year.

The TCEQ charges are civil, not criminal.  And, they are by no means the biggest problem for Gunselman who is jailed on federal wire fraud and money laundering charges.
