Pittsburgh man sent to jail for 3 months for impersonating Steelers tight end Jerame Tuman

Some might argue that some of the Pittsburgh Steelers were doing poor impersonations of NFL players last season, but a Pittsburgh man was doing an impersonation of one of them at the same time.

Brian Jackson has been sentenced to 90 days in prison, plus 5 years probation for one count of theft by deception and one count of identity theft. Jackson had impersonated Steelers tight end Jerame Tuman in order to get a woman to loan him $3,200.

NFL players are of course paid so poorly that they need to borrow money from random women they encounter, so the woman was happy to lend the fake Jerame Tuman the money. She eventually wrote the real Jerame Tuman a letter asking for her money, at which point the undoubtedly confused Tuman turned the matter over to the police.

Jackson had gotten into trouble in the past for impersonating Steelers quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Brian St. Pierre. However, when he impersonated Roethlisberger, he was quickly exposed, as he didn’t crash his motorcycle into anything, and he wasn’t being heckled by Pat.

One can only wonder if this guy will be dumb enough to continue to work his way through the Steelers roster. He might be able to convince someone that he is Jerame Tuman, but pulling off being Troy Polamalu would be quite the challenge.
