Police: Fugitive caught after posing for newspaper

Man Arrested After He Reveals Himself In Newspaper Poll

An alleged New York bail-jumper was arrested on his Pennsylvania college campus after he posed for a news photographer and police spotted his picture in the paper.


Authorities caught up to 25-year-old Jacob Close after he took part in the (Bloomsburg) Press Enterprise's weekly "Your Opinion" feature, answering a question about the controversy over the Washington Redskins' name.

Police say Close jumped bail in a drug and drunken-driving case in Ithaca, New York, several years ago. The Press Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1m9vuzZ) reports he was arrested Sunday at Bloomsburg University's student recreation center. University police knew Close was wanted but weren't aware he was on campus for the summer until his photo was published.

Close was held on $25,000 bail pending extradition to New York. Court records don't list an attorney for him.

Funny thing about the Redskins, IT WAS NAMED BY THE FIRST OWNER, A NATIVE AMERICAN, he didn't mind the name, I as a Cherokee don't mind the name. Only Obama has a problem with the name!

Honestly when we can get our panties in a tizzy over a teams name that has been that forever.....then I gotta wonder where the real priorities are as this is just stupid to be arguing and wanting to change the REDSKINS name. LEAVE IT BE!

Note to criminals: If you are wanted, STAY OUT OF THE PAPER! That will get you arrested faster than Facebook!

Funny thing in my opinion is the black lady's response in the picture " don't change it, its a tradition... So was slavery at one point in time....

Why make an issue out of a Teams name. I doubt it bothered anyone until now.

He wasn't arrested for what he said he was arrested because he was a fugitive. That said I thought what he said was clever.
