Patrick Hruby writes in today’s Washington Times: A registered sex offender has allegedly been pretending to be Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young in order to solicit fraudulent charitable donations and make sexual advances toward young women in the Washington area and elsewhere for at least five months, according to Mr. Young’s sports management agency and a series of emails obtained by the Washington Times. The man was identified by the agency and on Mr. Young’s Twitter feed as Stephan Pittman, 33, of Fort Washington, Md. Mr. Pittman was placed on probation for the sexual assault of a 23-year-old woman in Texas in 2009, according to the U.S. Department of Justice’s Sex Offender Database. EAG Sports Management CEO Denise White said that both her company - which represents Mr. Young - and the National Football League quarterback’s charitable foundation have been contacted since late May by “more than two dozen people” complaining about the impostor.
