Ryan Ward, a 30 year old guy from Tom’s River, New Jersey claims he was just having fun. He was cruising around New York signing autographs, hooking up with women and getting free food and drinks all by claiming he was Joba Chamberlain of the Yankees.
Prosecutors didn’t find it so funny. They tried tossing him in jail, but later a plea deal was reached and Ward ended up with two years probation, $2500 in fines and a lot of memories. Even the prosecutor on the case admitted, “It’s apparent that he could be the twin brother of Joba Chamberlain,’’ said Belmar municipal prosecutor Stephen Schueler.
See, where the guy went wrong was he pushed it too far and got too full of himself. He had the women and the free drinks and food, but then got a little mouthy when he was yelling outside a bar after he was intoxicated and that’s where his fun came to an end. He was arrested.
Ward says he’s done goofin’ and that Joba has nothing to worry about. Click here to get a better look. These guys could be twins, it’s amazing.
