Finally, a possible reason why FOX Sports cameras were so enamored with getting crowd shots during Saturday night's ALCS game between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers. They were helping suburban Boston police look for a suspect.
Police in Natick are on the lookout for a bearded white male wearing a Red Sox cap. No. Seriously.
This…according to their Facebook page:
On Saturday September 28, 2013 @ 11:15AM a young male was walking home with a friend near 249 North Main Street Rt. 27 (near Dunkin Donuts) when the juveniles noticed an older model green Expedition traveling southbound beeping its horn so as to get their attention. The operator of the vehicle, hanging his head out the window, in a loud voice said “DO YOU WANT A RIDE”. As the two Juveniles separated the same green Expedition turned around to go northbound passing one of the young males as it continued on. There was no other contact with the witnesses.
The person of interest was described as: White male approximately 45 to 48 years old, with a thin light brown, gray beard and thin mustache, wearing a well worn navy blue and white brim Red Sox hat.
Now, I don't want to be "Johnny Buzzkill" here, but let me get this straight…they're looking for a white dude, with a beard, wearing a Red Sox cap. Yeah, good luck with that this time of year.
Thankfully, the age rules out actors Ben Affleck, Ashton Kutcher and Jake Gyllenhaal. I'd hate to see them caught up in this debacle.
