Fugitive Caught After Making Redskins Joke in Newspaper

Hey if they would have changed the team name, this guy would have never been caught.

As a Dallas Cowboys fan I am not the biggest fan of the Washington Redskins. It is looking like the Redskins are going to end up changing their name in the coming years. Well a lot of television stations and newspapers have been going around asking, what do you think of the name of the Redskins?

Well one of those people was Jacob Close. He was approached by a reporter for the Enterprise Press in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, where he attends school,he said didn’t see anything wrong with the team’s name and joked, “I think they should keep the same name, but change the mascot to a potato.”

Apparently Close thought the joke was amusing and wanted credit, so he agreed to let the paper print his name and photo along with it. Nothing wrong with that, except Jacob is a fugitive who has been on the lose for drugs and drunk driving charges. Remember kids if you are on the loose from the law, change your name. Also don’t do any interviews with the media.
