I'm sorry, I can kinda understand his thinking he could (and I guess he did) get away with the Tuman or St. Pierre personas since they are not on TV all the time. But did he really think he could pretend to be Big Ben for long when he's on the cover of ever newspaper and on TV all the time? This is the definition of wacko.

Another one? Seems to me a year or two ago someone else was running around claiming to be Ben Roethlisberger as well. I wonder why nobody ever impersonates a Bungle - maybe it's because they don't want to get escorted "downtown" in one of these?:

I think this article give more depth and gets more into the people involved rather than the facts; I say it's a welcome addition to the story.

And the guy hasn't been to trial yet; court date is June 2007.

Man sentenced to jail for impersonating Steeler
Wednesday, July 25, 2007

By Tyler Batiste, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A Brentwood man was sentenced this morning to 90 days in jail and five years on probation for impersonating Steelers tight end Jerame Tuman and convincing a woman to loan him $3,200.

Brian Jackson, 33, pleaded guilty to one count of theft by deception and one count of identity theft.

Brian Jackson, 33, pleaded guilty in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court to one count of theft by deception and one count of identity theft. He was ordered to report to jail by Aug. 24.

Neither Jackson nor his attorney, James Sheets, would comment as they left the courtroom this morning. Sheets had asked for probation for Jackson, saying he had already made restitution to the victim.

The woman told police that a mutual friend introduced her to the man who said he was Tuman, and the man then convinced her to loan him the money over the course of a couple months in early 2006. Jackson was arrested after the woman sent a letter to Tuman through the Steelers asking for the money back. Tuman turned the letter over to Steelers security.

Assistant District Attorney Debra Barnisin-Lange asked Judge Gerard M. Bigley for jail time for Jackson, saying he had also pretended in the past to be Steelers quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Brian St. Pierre.

In 2005, Jackson was charged with impersonating Roethlisberger and his backup, St. Pierre, to meet and date women. He was ordered then to undergo counseling and sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct.

Steeler impersonator trying to avoid jail
Thursday, August 16, 2007

By Jim McKinnon, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A Brentwood man, who pleaded guilty last month to impersonating a Steeler player to con a woman out of $3,200, is trying to avoid jail.

Allegheny County Judge Gerard M. Bigley said today he would take under advisement arguments on behalf of Brian R. Jackson, 33.

Mr. Jackson pleaded guilty July 25 to one count each of theft by deception and identity theft, both third-degree felonies.

Judge Bigley sentenced Mr. Jackson to 90 days in jail and ordered him to report for confinement Aug. 24. He also was ordered to serve five years probation.

Defense attorney James P. Sheets filed a motion previously asking the judge to reconsider the sentence and order the time to be served on house arrest.

In early 2006, Mr. Jackson met a woman at a Pittsburgh bar and pretended that he was Jerame Tuman, a tight end for the Steelers.

Over the course of their relationship, Mr. Jackson convinced the woman to lend him $3,200.

The money has since been repaid, but his penalty for the crime still is pending the judge's decision.

Mr. Jackson has been convicted in at least two similar incidents in which he impersonated Steelers quarterbacks Brian St. Pierre and Ben Roethlisberger.

He pleaded guilty in those cases to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct.
