We’re heard stories about homeless folks posing as airline passengers and living out in airports to days, weeks, sometimes years at a time, but this may be a new one.
According to Trojans Insider Scott Wolf, a California homeless man posed as a USC Trojans football player and got away with it for a few days.
“I’ve had several conversations with a USC campus security source the past 2 days and was told the following based on conversations with the imposter:
1.) The imposter actually shared a jacuzzi at the McKay Center with other football players.
2.) He ate at the football dining facility without issue.
3.) He also slept for some time at a suite in the Coliseum. He was known to USC security because he was caught at the soccer field (McAlister Field) on 30th Street and Hoover.”
“I’m not sure how he got into the McKay Center so easily,” a security source told Wolf last week. “That’s the question and the problem for me. He also shouldn’t even be on campus with the COVID-19 restrictions. We had a previous issue with him at the soccer field, so we knew who he was but he had never done something like this before.”
“What gets me is the guts the guy had to just walk in like he belonged,” said the security source. “He must have been a cool customer in the McKay Center. If he hadn’t tried to return punts at practice, he might still be out there because they might not have noticed him.”
Two things we know now that don’t have top notch security – the U.S. Capitol building, and the USC practice facility.
Who would have thought.
