Man Arrested for Catfishing Coaches With NFL & College Job Offers


Kenneth Edward Tarr is learning a lesson that many criminals have learned.

Don’t brag about your crime.

Police have arrested a man in Los Angeles who they say pranked at least a dozen coaches from the NFL, NBA and college football into believing he was offering them jobs with pro or college teams.

Kenneth Edward Tarr, 32, was arrested Monday morning and charged with felony eavesdropping, for allegedly recording the prank calls, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Under California law, it is illegal to record someone without their consent.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy was one victim of the hoax, an official tells ABC News.

Tarr would have been fine if he didn’t run his mouth to Deadspin, ABC News, The Village Voice and others. By being so arrogant, he probably is going to spend some years behind bars.
