25-year-old man arrested for posing as a 17-year-old high school student

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley was arrested last week on a charge of tamering with government records. The 25-year-old had been impersonating a 17-year-old student at a Dallas area high school. Watch the story below.

The Dallas Independent School District (DISD) relaxed its proof-of-residency requirements in order to take in students displaced by Hurricane Harvey. The idea was to help students who had lost everything, not greedy adults who wanted a second chance at glory, but that’s exactly what police say Gilstrap-Portley was trying to do. Under the alias Rashun Richardson, he was named his district’s offensive player of the year and lead Hillcrest High to the playoffs.

This is an extreme example, but it shows an adult who doesn’t know when his time has passed. I don’t know what satisfaction there is for an adult to go out and dominate kids. I also don’t know what satisfaction there is for an adult to live vicariously through kids, either.
