NOT Jerry Sandusky

The Mystery Flight

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

1114_man_airport_tmz
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.

I call bullsh**! This is sooooooooooooooo Sandusky! Compare the hairline to the NBC interview photo you posted. Really...if you were him, would YOU admit it? Yeah...just by pure coincidence, there's record o*****erald Sandusky boarding...and the same flight just happens to have his doppelganger on board? Right.

I think it's him too. I think TMZ also knows it's him, but what can they do if the person denies their identity?

Hmm...I notice TMZ has erased the original story when they wrote that the guy in this picture actually was Jerry Sandusky. Own up to your mistake, TMZ.

there is a sports writer named Gerald Sandusky. seriously...he has a twitter account that just so happens to say that today he flew into Michigan to cover a college basketball game...which happens to be where Detroit is located so perhaps he is the Gerald Sandusky that had the boarding pass. he even tweeted about having the same name as Jerry Sandusky and it was picked up on by numerous ACTUAL sports writers. not that hard to verify he has been getting questions about his name pretty much since the story broke so look up his twitter feed.

The terrible thing about this is that TMZ cares about ******* this up as much as Lindsay Lohan cares about her legal problems.
