Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Fakes, Falls, and Football

It’s Sunday night, I haven’t left my house since noon yesterday, and I’m in bed watching the latest 30 for 30. Obviously, my weekend has been great, unlike these people.

Daniel Alfredo Burleson

Many of us had a fake ID during our underage years, but I’d like to think most of were smart enough not to recreate one of my most famous fake IDs of all time.

Burleson was arrested in Iowa City early Friday morning after he was approached by police officer in a bar and produced a Hawaiian ID with the name McLovin and a birthdate of 06/03/1981. Yes, that’s right – Burleson had the fake ID from Superbad.

The 20 year old admitted to the officer that he was drinking and after producing the fake ID, was arrested and charged with possession of a fictitious ID, public intoxication, being under legal age in a bar, and possession of alcohol underage.

On the upside, Seth Rogen thought it was pretty funny:

Matthew Bushman

In our second fake ID story of the week, we meet Mr. Bushman, a 36 year old from Illinois, who gave a fake name and  birthdate to officers with the Mattoon Police Department, who were investigating a forgery. The problem? Well, as you can see…he has his name tattooed on his neck:

“Matty B” was arrested for obstructing justice, as well as for an outstanding warrant.

Lane Kiffin

It doesn’t pay to tweet about officiating if you are the FAU Head Football Coach/friend of @Delph, Lane Kiffin.

Kiffin tweeted a photograph that depicted the officials from the FAU/Marshall game on Saturday as being blind:

Not only did Kiffin’s Owls lose, he was fined $5,000 and publicly reprimanded him on Sunday by Conference USA for violating the league’s sportsmanship policy.

It’s a pretty funny tweet, though. [Via ESPN]

Lady Gaga

Audience participation is always a great part of any concert, but it didn’t go so well for Lady Gaga the other night.

During her “Enigma” show at the Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas, Gaga invited a fan named Jack to join her on stage. The singer jumped into his arms and that’s where things went wrong:

Gaga popped back up, said she was fine, and continued the show; although, while attending her make up artist’s bachelorette party this weekend, she complained of being in pain. Hopefully all is ok.

Andy Dalton

It was a bad, bad Sunday for everyone’s favorite ginger quarterback. Which made a fun day on Twitter:
