WASHINGTON (AP) - A District of Columbia community nonprofit group is accused in a lawsuit of diverting government grant funds to buy two luxury sport utility vehicles for its chief executive.

The D.C. Office of the Attorney General announced a case Friday against Peaceoholics Inc., a nonprofit that provides services for at-risk youth.

The lawsuit seeks to recover more than $100,000 in grant funds that it says were used to buy luxury cars for CEO Jauhar Abraham. A lawyer for Abraham didn't return a call seeking comment.

The attorney general's office also says the group received more than $178,000 after submitting a false grant application to the D.C. Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation. That application included inaccurate details about the compensation received by Abraham and former chief operating officer Ronald Moten.
