Fugitive Arrested After Offering Opinion on Redskins Name

 
Fugitive Arrested After Offering Opinion on Redskins Name
Posted July 8th, 2014 @ 12:01pm

Jacob Close was asked for his opinion on the Washington Redskins' name by a Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania newspaper.  The Press Enterprise asked the question as a part of their weekly "Your Opinion" feature.

Close's response?

"I think they should keep the same name, but change the mascot to a potato."

Hilarious.  So original.

But, there's a problem.

Close was a wanted man.  The 25-year-old jumped bail in New York.  So, when his name and photo appeared in the newspaper, authorities tracked him down and arrested him.
