TAMPA — Something wasn’t right about Chad Jordan.
He was perfectly nice at youth football practice, his coach said. He never made any trouble. But still, “There just was a lot of stuff that wasn’t adding up, you know?” said Ray McCloud, coach of the Town ‘N Country Packers.
McCloud’s instincts were right.
Julious Javone Threatts is 21 years old. He’s now behind bars without bail after Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies said he used the alias Chad Jordan to pose as a 14-year-old boy, join the Tampa Bay Youth Football League and try to register at a Tampa middle school. Threatts was on probation for burglary charges, authorities later determined.
He now faces charges of trespassing on school grounds, obstruction by a disguised person and violation of probation.
