Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner left jail by ambulance Thursday after complaining of exhaustion. Warner was one of several FIFA officials arrested on federal corruption charges this week.

Warner, who is no longer with FIFA after being forced out in 2011 over a bribery scandal, is facing eight counts in the U.S., including conspiracy to defraud and engage in racketeering.

He surrendered to police Wednesday and spent the night in jail.

Warner did find time to talk to a crowd of supporters after leaving the jail.

"If I have been thiefing FIFA money for 30 years, who give me the money? How come he is not charged? Why only persons from Third World countries have been charged?"

FIFA's presidential election is scheduled for Friday.
