Apparently, Jeffrey Paul Gravelle, of Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho likes high school cheerleaders.
So much so, that he is willing to drive for hours to see them just stretch and warm up. And, according to police, he also likes getting close to them. But before you think he’s just obsessed with their routines, you need to read the following from the Tri-City Herald:
Jeffrey Paul Gravelle, of Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, was at two Hanford High School football games last month and allegedly grabbed or touched three cheerleaders under their skirts. School officials later identified him as a suspect who was seen loitering outside the girls’ locker room during a basketball game in February, court documents said. The first football game incident was Sept. 7 at the Hanford-Kamiakin game. A Hanford cheerleader reported that she was talking to other cheerleaders when a man came up behind her, grabbed her buttocks and reached under her skirt, documents said. A couple with sons on the football team also told authorities they saw the man, later identified as Gravelle, push between them and hit the cheerleader’s bottom, documents said. When the girl didn’t respond, the man reached under her skirt, the couple said.
A Kamiakin cheerleader said Gravelle also walked by her, touched her behind then reached under her skirt. She said she also saw the man go out of his way to approach another Kamiakin cheerleader, documents said. Gravelle reportedly told police that he “had a sexual problem for the last 15 years,” in particular with high school cheerleaders, documents said. He said he liked watching them warm up and stretch before games and is willing to drive several hours at a time just to watch them, documents said. He also denied groping the cheerleaders, but said he did accidentally touch each one on the bottom, documents said.
On the plus side, when Kentucky State quarterback Martez “How You Doin’? James was arrested in front of his coach after making unwanted advances towards a hotel housekeeper just hours before he was supposed to play.
Twenty-two-year-old Martez James was arrested Saturday morning. James has been the starting quarterback all season for the Kentucky State Thorobreds. They were in Chicago to play in the annual “Chicago Classic” college game at Soldier Field, a scholarship fundraising event this year focused on curbing violence.
But, in an embarrassing pre-game encounter, the Kentucky State quarterback was arrested after police say he went after a maid at the team hotel. When Mayor Rahm Emanuel did the ceremonial coin flip just before kickoff on Saturday afternoon, almost no one at Soldier Field knew what had happened just a few hours earlier at the Kentucky State team hotel.
Quarterback Martez James, a blue chip, 220-pound senior from Detroit, had been arrested by Chicago police after a 911 call from the Hyatt McCormick Place where the Thorobreds players and staff were staying. Chicago police say, about 10 a.m., James past a hotel housekeeper in the hallway on the sixth floor, and asked, “Can I have five minutes of your time?” The “victim ignored offender,” according to investigators, and “proceded (sic) to room 605.” Then the “offender entered room 605,” she told police.
According to the police report obtained by the I-Team, James repeated the question, “Can I have five minutes of your time?” Sex crimes detectives say he then “approached her from rear and pressed the front of his body against the back of her body.”
James was charged with battery for allegedly making physical contact with a victim. At the Hyatt McCormick Place, the team’s athletic director and football coach were both present during the arrest. James did not play in the game at Soldier Field, but at this point officials at the Frankfort, Kentu
Yes, you read that right: the coach of a youth baseball team made up of 10 and 11-year-olds got into a dispute with a rival coach back in May and then started stalking and harassing him. Robert Sanfilippo, 45, was actually arrested DURING a baseball game on Friday after police say he anonymously sent threatening text messages and photograph. Ironically, Sanfilippo coaches a team called the Long Island Vengeance. Apparently the New York Creeps was already taken.
Here’s more from KSEE:
Sanfilippo who coaches the Long Island Vengeance was charged with 20 counts of aggravated harassment and one count of stalking on Saturday. According to police after Sanfilippo and another coach got into a dispute during a tournament in May, Sanfilippo bought an untraceable phone and began threatening to harm the other man. Commack resident John Reardon told Newsday that he, his wife and their 10-year-old son were the targets of Sanfilippo’s messages. ’I didn’t know it was him at first,’ Mr Reardon said. ‘It was nerve-racking. I couldn’t sleep. When he suddenly started mentioning my son by name, it just hit me that it was this guy.’
