The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Julious Javone Threatts. He gets the award for the following-
A Tampa man is behind bars after he allegedly posed as a 14-year-old to join a youth football league.Did Threatts ever hear of the case of Guerdwich Montimere? Maybe he did, because he worried about being discovered during his time playing football.
Julious Javone Threatts, 21, has been charged with trespassing on school grounds, obstruction by a disguised person and violation of probation. When Threatts was arrested last Tuesday a records check shows he was on probation for burglary charges.
It's unclear how long Threatts pretended to be a teenager or why he did it.
Steve Levinson, president of the football league, said Threatts played for the now defunct West Coast Youth Football Conference last year, trained again during the spring and then joined the Tampa Bay league at the beginning of this season.
Levinson said the person he knew as Chad Jordan turned in all the necessary registration paperwork, including a copy of his birth certificate, which officials now realize must have been fake.
Tampa Bay league coach Ray McCloud said he thought it was odd that "Chad" kept his helmet on even when the game was over.
McCloud said when he began to look into "Chad's" story he found a person from Threatt's neighborhood who said while Threatt's father died in a car accident in St. Petersburg last year, his mother was alive.
McCloud then found Threatt's Facebook page, which lists his mother as Debra Miller and indicated that he had graduated from Leto High School.
Threatts scheme finally unraveled when he went to enroll in D. W. Webb Middle School without a parent or the necessary paperwork.
During the school's investigation, Threatts' cell phone rang. One of the officials picked it up and asked who was on the line, according to an arrest affidavit. The caller said she was Threatt's mother, and authorities were finally able to piece together his identity.
Without further ado, I name Julious Javone Threatts today's Knucklehead of the Day.
