Talk about your all time backfires. Jeffrey Jacobs, son of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, was arrested on Friday after posing as his father to get out of a traffic ticket & a bill from a tree service company after a tree fell on his home.
Via “The Hour” – Police said Jeffrey Jacobs, 37, lied about his identity to curry favor with a tree service company after a tree fell on his home on Drum Hill Road during a storm last year.
The tree company’s owner, who told police he was an avid Bruins fan, was enticed to come out to the home in the middle of the storm and later billed the $5,100 job to Jeremy Jacobs, the actual owner of the Bruins.
In May 2017, Wilton police learned of the incident when they received a call from the security department of Delaware North, a hospitality and food service management company chaired by the Bruins’ owner. Police were familiar with Jacobs. They said he was pulled over in November and used a similar lie to try and get out of a traffic ticket.
A warrant for Jacobs’ arrest was obtained by police. Jacob was arrested Friday, July 20, by police in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., after he was pulled over for using his phone while driving. He was transferred to the Wilton Police Department later that night. Jacobs was charged with criminal impersonation. He was released on a $5,000 bond and given a court date of July 30.
Dude, come on, you’re 37 and your father is like 80, it’s not even close. If you’re gonna pull that card, just say your dad owns the Bruins and everyone will probably just let it slide, but because of how comical it is, you’re now in jail. Your dad is worth over $5 BILLION dollars, just have him pay your tickets. Now you’re in a deeper hole with the bond, court fees and damages. Come on man, at least resemble the man before you impersonate him…
