Some things just seem too bizarre to possibly be true: Like a grown man going to prep sports events in multiple states just to get piggyback rides from unsuspecting young athletes.
The judicial system in Helena, Mont., had to use some of its precious resources to convict and sentence Sherwin Shayegan, 28, on two counts of misdemeanor assault last Wednesday. Shayegan admitted to jumping on the backs of two different athletes at the state high school tournament in October, and he earned himself a 360-day suspended jail sentence and a $730 fine.
His reasoning? He was just trying to be funny.According to the Helena Independent Record
, Municipal Court Judge Bob Wood told Shayegan “It’s not funny. It could be dangerous ... Go back to Seattle and behave."
Adding to the craziness, aside from the fact that Shayegan weighs around 250 pounds, is that he has been banned from prep sports events in two other states because of his love for piggybacks. The newspaper reported that Shayegan is barred from attending prep sporting events in Washington and Oregon.
Now he can add Montana to his list.
Idaho, you might want to watch your backs.
