A man preferred going to jail than snitch on his favorite football team, talk about being a true sport. He refused to cooperate with the police regarding stolen sport equipment from Luisiana State University, and told officials to take him straight to jail as he was in silenzio stampa.
An employee from Sneaker Politics store, Fletcher Sanders admitted in front of the police that he was involved in the selling of a pair of football cleats and gloves, used in a game, that he obtained from one of the players from Tiger. When asked about who that player was, the man refused categorically Police gave him a second chance to answer, and asked him again, but there was no way Sanders would talk. Not even the threats of going to jail didn’t scare him. The 25 year old, told the police he was ready to be taken to jail, as he was not going to destroy that persons career over some sport equipment.
Police did as he asked, and Fletcher Sanders was taken to Baton Rouge Parish Prison, under the accusations of theft and possession of stolen goods. The bail was set at $3000 and he was released on Tuesday, according to records.
Selling LSU equipment was problematic, because the sport items don’t belong to the players, but they are the property of the school which leases them to the players. The players and students are prohibited to sell or give away any sports item that they use.
The police captain of Luisiana State University, Cory Lalonde, said that the police had been informed about the illegal sale by the staff handling the equipment, who had reported it missing. And later they identified Fletcher Sanders as the person who had put the equipment for sale on eBay.
According to police reports, the stolen equipment was promoted on eBay as having been used on October 25th, during Luisiana State University’s game against Ole Miss.
For now, the mysterious theft would remain under police investigation. Law officials are trying to recuperate the stolen equipment and find out who was the football player who broke the rules and gave away the team’s sports gear.
