Stand Up Dude Chooses Jail Instead of Ratting Out LSU Player Over eBay NCAA Violation

Fletcher Sanders loves LSU so much he’s willing to go to jail.

LSU

There’s fans and then there’s Fletcher Sanders, who is choosing to go to jail rather than hurt his beloved LSU Tigers.

Sanders sold a pair of game-worn gloves and cleats, which he acquired from an LSU player, on eBay.

This is a big no-no in the NCAA world, since they already handsomely compensate all student-athletes…

So big, in fact, that the Baton Rouge police got involved, claiming the equipment was “stolen” from the school.

But when the fuzz came for Sanders, the 25-year-old superfan refused to name the player he got the merch from and was arrested for not cooperating with the police investigation.

Per The Advocate:

A Baton Rouge shoe store employee recently told police he would rather go to jail than cooperate with authorities in an investigation into some official, game-worn LSU football equipment that recently was sold on eBay, LSU police said.

And go to jail he did.

A police officer contacted Fletcher Sanders, 25, after an investigation revealed that he was the seller of a pair of cleats and gloves advertised on eBay as having been worn during LSU’s thrilling upset win against the Ole Miss Rebels in October, according to a police report.

Sanders told police that he sold the gear for an LSU football player. But when an investigator asked Sanders to name the football player, Sanders clammed up, according to the report.

The officer, in turn, told Sanders that he would be arrested if he did not cooperate, the report says.

“Do what you have to do,” Sanders responded, according to the report. “I am not going to be responsible for ruining someone’s career.”

So police followed up on their promise and booked him into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of principal to theft and possession of stolen things. He was released Tuesday after posting $3,000 bail, booking records show.
