NOT Jerry Sandusky

The Mystery Flight

11/14/2011 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Gerald Sandusky got a boarding pass on a Spirit Airlines flight this afternoon from LaGuardia to Detroit.  This we know.

Here's the problem.  This guy is NOT Jerry Sandusky.

Passengers on the flight tell TMZ ... they walked up to the man at LaGuardia and he said he couldn't talk about the Penn State scandal.  We then confirmed a Gerald Sandusky indeed had a boarding pass for the flight.

But when the plane landed in Detroit, we spoke with the man and he said in no uncertain terms ... he was not the guy. 

As for the Gerald Sandusky who got the boarding pass ... we just don't know.

Ha Ha the previous picture had TMZ all over it and now it doesn't. Might want to tell the other sites that still have the old picture with the TMZ watermark to take it down or you might get sued.

Uh, man... What a lawsuit this guy has, imagine having your picture splashed on a website saying your a child molester. I would ask for at least a seven figure settlement .. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

In your 1st article you stated people tried to talk to him and he politely declined. Why wouldn't he say he is not the right guy?

If this were the real Jerry Sandusky he would be an even bigger moron than we know he is walking in an airport unprotected. People are so outraged about this, he may not need to wait for a trial.

Wooo wee, I even commented on this story earlier, apparently the TMZ photogs need glasses, and so do I. I'm sure this guy appreciates all the great "publicity" though. Nothing makes your day like being mistaken for the most reviled guy in America. Regardless, the real Sandusky is out on bail, which is ridiculous!

Holy **** you people are a bunching of lying ********. You're totally making up that part about passengers telling you he wouldn't comment on the Penn State scandal to cover your dumb asses. I hope this guys sues you.

Many commentators told you it wasn't the pedo guy. Is a great thing nothing happened to this innocent man.
