Catfishing is a horrible thing to do to a person, but you don’t want to lose your freedom over getting revenge.
I think most people can understand Etute’s frustration, but now he is going to have to convince a jury that what he did was justified.
Here is the wild story.
Suspended Virginia Tech linebacker Isi Etute told cops he beat the hell out of a 40-year-old after the man had catfished him … this according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors say Etute told the cops he had matched with a person named “Angie” on Tinder believing she was a woman — and had met up with her for oral sex on April 10.
Officials say Etute then told cops he and “Angie” set up another date on May 31, but when he discovered there that she was actually a man — the football player attacked.
Prosecutors say Etute told cops he punched the victim several times in the face and also stomped on him.
Prosecutors say Etute added that he did not call cops after the attack, despite hearing “bubbling and gurgling” as he left the apartment.
“Angie” was found dead two days later.
Etute has been granted bail while being charged with 2nd-degree murder.
Etute’s lawyer said his client didn’t do anything wrong.
