Investigators say Stephan Antwon Pittman, 33, is accused of swindling a woman while pretending to be Vince Young, the backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
A Prince George's County police spokesperson says Pittman convinced the unidentified 28-year-old woman to give him $2,500 for a children's charity foundation. The two reportedly met three months ago on a social media website.
Police say they became suspicious after online reports from website users suggested someone was impersonating Vince Young. Even Young wrote a note on his Twitter feed warning followers about the possibility of someone using his identity.
Authorities say Pittman will be extradited to the District to face charges of first-degree fraud.
