U.S. Marshals searching for sex offender known to impersonate NFL player
CLEVELAND – The U.S. Marshals are searching for Stephan Pittman, accused of theft and fraud.
Officials say Pittman is known to impersonate Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young while committing several crimes.
Marshals have been searching for Pittman for more than a year, as he has more than 14 cases against him where he pretended to be Young. He was also convicted of rape in 2009 in Texas.
Federal investigators say Pittman had moved to the Cleveland area, and initially registered with the sheriff’s department as a sex offender, but then he moved and failed to register his new address.
He is known to hang around bars in Lakewood, claiming to be Young.
Officials are making it a high priority to capture him since he failed to register, which he required to do by law.
Anyone who has information should contact the U.S. Marshals Office in Cleveland at (216) 522-2150.
