The 49-year-old man allegedly told a woman his name was Dante Sir Foster and that he had played for the Denver Broncos.
A Colorado man was arrested for allegedly impersonating a former NFL athlete and scamming a woman out of more than $100,000, police said.
James Otis Turner, 49, of Highlands Ranch, allegedly told a woman that his name was Dante Sir Foster and that he used to play for the Denver Broncos.
The woman reported the incident in October and told investigators that she had been defrauded. A spokesman for the police department told NBC News that Turner and the woman, whose identity was not revealed, were in a relationship over several months and that he had convinced the woman that he needed money.
The real Dante Foster found out about the story and commented.
