This is absolutely insane!
Like something out of a certain Drew Barrymore movie - but much more effed up!
The high school that inspired Friday Night Lights has been rocked with scandal after one of their best basketball players was exposed as a 22 year old!
Guerdwich Montimere, who graduated from high school in Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2007, enrolled at Permian High School under the name Jerry Joseph and managed to convince his coach, Danny Wright, that he was homeless. Wright even took the liar in!
Suspicions apparently arose at a tourament in Arkansas last month, where various coaches recognized Montmimere from his actual high school career, and after some investigation, officials confronted the con artist and arrested him!
He's currently being held on $500 bail and, if convicted, could face up to six months in prison!
Wright, whose team must now have to forfeit the rest of their season because of the fraud, says:
"This affected a lot of people. The whole school of Permian embraced that kid. He deceived us and played on everyone's emotions."
So HOrrific! The douche must have desperately wanted to re-live his high school glory days!
