Bernard Berrian Catches Friend And Ex-Teammate Burglarizing His Home
What part of the game is THIS???
Former Vikings and Bears wide receiver Bernard Berrian has gone from catching passes to criminals, and his post-playing career as a sleuth won’t get any easier than it did when he caught his friend red-handed.
The strange but true story, as told by Berrian to KFSN-TV Action News reporter Sontaya Rose, began with a pair of unsolved burglaries in Berrian’s Fresno area home during early April. As a result, the one-time NFL leader in yards per reception installed a security system to help solve the targeted crime spree.
Meanwhile, Berrian’s former Fresno State teammate and longtime friend Therrian Fontenot had taken a creepy interest in his whereabouts. Their conversations went something like, “Hey, man, are you around this weekend? Oh, you’re out of town? Any chance you could send over the itinerary? Just curious is all.”
A couple weeks later, Fontenot, who appeared in two career NFL games as a defensive back for the Packers and Browns, left a barbecue the two friends attended together, and Berrian received an alert on his phone. He fired up the security footage, and there was Fontenot rifling through his belongings.
“I actually watched him doing it while he was doing it,” said Berrian. “I could have actually spoke to him, I got a microphone on there. I could have told him, I got you, while he was doing it.”
“I was like, wow, he is a real professional, he takes a spray bottle with him to wipe off fingerprints and a towel.”
The game is filthy. SMH.
