Wow! The cops nabbed this guy not far from the BadJocks Bunker here in Michigan where “the magic happens.” And, by “magic” we mean our attempts at slight-of-hand tricks and escaping from handcuffs, and stuff like that. It certainly doesn’t refer to this site.
Anyway, brave Michigan cops apprehended one Jason Anderson who apparently is wanted in three states for promising to conduct baseball camps and/or create a traveling baseball team for young all-stars, collecting money from mom and dad and then–allegedly skipping down. Boo, hiss!
But Anderson’s arrest record doesn’t end there: he also has some check fraud charges against him in Michigan and Florida and was also driving on a suspended license which was pulled for reportedly driving while intoxicated.
Yeah, we want this guy coaching our kids.
Deputies investigating a parked 2010 Dodge Charger arrested Jason A. Anderson, 35, of Clarklake, Mich., on McCain Road in Brighton about 12:10 a.m., according to a sheriff’s office statement. In the Rapid City, S.D., area, Anderson is wanted for fraud and grand theft by deception.
Rapid City police Capt. Deb Cady said Anderson appeared to have four victims in the area after collecting payment from parents for services not rendered to young baseball players. “He would tell parents of kids who played baseball he would have a traveling team and they would attend various camps and tournaments,” Cady said.
Anderson is also wanted for failure to appear on a no-account check charge in Michigan, had his Michigan driver’s license suspended for driving while intoxicated, and is wanted in Florida on 11 counts of using forged documents or checks.
