Vince Young is using the Eddie Murphy RAW excuse in dealing with his lockout loan lawsuit. He is basically saying….
“IT WASN’T ME…”
His defense on why he shouldn’t pay the money back is because he didn’t take out the loan and someone pretending to be him took out the loan in his name.
In papers filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Monday, Young said he never dealt with the loan company, Pro Player Funding. He added, he has no recollection of agreeing to or signing documents to take out a $1.877 million loan in May 2011.
In filing the motion, the quarterback’s attorneys are asking the court to stop Pro Player from attempting to collect money and also bar the company from approaching the quarterback as they say happened during training camp.
Young said a person tried to approach him at training camp in suburban Rochester earlier this month in an attempt to serve him papers to appear for a deposition regarding the loan. The person, Young said, was turned away by security officials.
And Young said in an affidavit that he is unaware of who took out the loan in his name and that, to his knowledge, he never received any money from the loan.
Among the documents Pro Player filed was what’s called an affidavit of confession of judgment that included papers signed by Young as proof the player was aware of the terms and conditions of the loan. The short-term loan was to be repaid by January 2013 at an annual interest rate of 20 percent. That rate jumped another 10 percent if Young missed a payment.
VY and Antoine Walker will be roommates soon.
