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.

Funny how TMZ plastered "TMZ" all over the picture when they thought it was him, but when they found out that it wasn't him, they removed the "TMZ TMZ TMZ" going all over the picture. TOOLS!

Kinda like the old say, "if it looks like dog sh*t, smells like dog sh*t, taste like dog sh*t, it must be dog sh*t"

There was a sportscaster at WBAL in Baltimore with the name "Gerry" Sandusky, not "Jerry". Not sure if this is him or not and not sure if he's still even working, but I sure do feel for the guy. According to reports, he's never met this Jerry.

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

Um yeah, this a problem for you TMZ! Especially since you passed his photo off as Jerry S and splattered it all over web. TMZ you better hope this guy doesn't come forward to sue you. Come to think of it, maybe it was an intentional trojan Jerry hired to get paps off his back.

People here were already pointing out when you guys posted the picture that this guy was not Jerry Sandusky. You need to get your facts straight! Remember the whole Dwight Yoakam/Neil Young mix-up???

That is not Sandusky! That is my dad traveling home. He was sitting at the airport eating a bagel and reading Scripture on notecards. He is a husband, a father, a Christian man, and a dentist. This association is rude and horrifying and mostly reckless. Will the people responsible please apologize and make it right somehow?
