CLEVELAND – The U.S. Marshals are searching for Stephan Pittman, accused of theft and fraud.
Officials say Pittman is known to impersonate Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young while committing several crimes.
Marshals have been searching for Pittman for more than a year, as he has more than 14 cases against him where he pretended to be Young. He was also convicted of rape in 2009 in Texas.
He is known to hang around bars in Lakewood, claiming to be Young.
I mean… anyone with a smartphone and Google at their fingertips can clearly see that guy doesn’t resemble Vince Young at all. They’re both black. They’re both guys. Both kinda bald. Aside from that I just don’t see it.
Kind of a slap in the face to pretend to be one of the best college football players ever, huh? That guy DOES NOT look like someone who beat one of the best college football teams of all time (USC) by himself to win a National Championship (neither does the current version of Vince Young though).
Just ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. I’m assuming this guy has been hitting up the Lakewood bars (Around The Corner probably) and trying to get laid. I mean, who in their right mind goes around in bars telling people they’re Vince Young to get laid? Even Vince Young doesn’t tell girls he’s Vince Young to get laid.
If Pittman is smart he’ll go all in on the charade and start showing up to bars shirtless:
LIMA, Ohio — A Lima man wanted by police sent investigators a selfie after seeing his “terrible” mugshot posted on social media.
“Here is a better photo, that one is terrible,” Donald “Chip” Pugh said in a message to police.
Pugh, 45, is wanted for failing to appear in court. He is also a person of interest in a number of crimes including arson and vandalism, the Lima Police Departmentsaid on Facebook.
Pugh is disheveled and sports a cheesy grin in his mugshot. His preferred photo shows him sharply dressed, well-groomed and wearing sunglasses.
An all-time move from Chip Pugh here. It’s like he’s running his own personal real life criminal Facebook profile. Don’t like a picture you’re tagged in? Unflattering angle with a double chin? Untag yourself. Don’t like your mugshot? Send in a different one. We all do it on social media, Chip just did it in real life as he’s wanted by police. Boss move.
Really it’s not any different than you picking the best looking pic for your Facebook profile either. Unfortunately for Chip, mugshots last forever. That’s why my man had to take matters into his own hands and send in his most fire looking selfie. Can’t have a bad mugshot pop up when prospective girlfriends Google your name in a few years. Gotta look good for the people who might come across your name on the Internet.
UPDATE: He got caught.
Hopefully this doesn’t start a trend among criminals because otherwise we wouldn’t have gems like these:
