Philadelphia Eagles’ Vince Young Impostor Arrested For Fraud

As a die hard Washington Redskins fan I have a strong disdain for pretty much all of the other NFC East teams (the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and the dreaded Dallas Cowboys). That being said, when I came across this story yesterday about a man posing as Vince Young and conning a woman out of money I couldn’t help but think: “why would anybody want people to think he’s Vince Young?!?”

All kidding and unsportsmanlike words aside, Stephan Antwain Pittman of Maryland, was arrested at a shopping center in Temple Hills, MD on September 23, 2011 for impersonating Eagles backup quarterback, Vince Young and conning a woman out of $2,500.

Apparently the scam victim met Pittman on Facebook over the summer and was lead to believe he was Vince Young. When the two met in person the victim ended up handing over $2,500 to Pittman for “D.C.-area children to buy things like hula hoops, and bikes” – Source.

Yes, hula hoops and bikes.

Prince George’s County spokeswoman, Julie Parker, said that Pittman was convincing at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds and a certain swagger about him. This could have lead an unsuspecting scam victim to believe his tall tales (pun intended).

Apparently Vince Young’s agent discovered Pittman at charity events for children posing as Young and sparked this investigation.

Reportedly, Vince Young says he is “thrilled by the arrest.”
