Man pleads not guilty after allegedly posing as an aide to Giants GM Jerry Reese

prank31n-3-webAccording to the New York Daily News,  a California man has pleaded not guilty for allegedly posing as an aide to Giants general manager Jerry Reese.

Kenny Tarr, 32, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Monday to enter his plea and say he’s a hoax artist, not a criminal.

It sounds like this guy has no life and was bored.

Prosecutors filed the charge Dec. 17, claiming Tarr illegally recorded more than half a dozen prank phone calls to coaches affiliated with the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, Major League Baseball and university football programs.

He called the coaches to “gauge their interest” in working for other teams and record the speakerphone spoofs for release online, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.

“A felony filing on these facts is a palpable absurdity,” Tarr’s lawyer Robert Sheahen told the Daily News Monday.

This idiot even sent some videos of him prank calling numerous teams to Deadspin.

Tarr also allegedly called former NFL coach Tony Dungy around the same time and offered him a shot at the head coaching job at USC.

Dungy, the former top coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, later mentioned the offer on a radio show, not realizing it was bogus.

Tarr seems to think he’s doing some relevant.

“I’m still the craziest person I’ve ever met,” Tarr reportedly told Deadspin. “What I do is far beyond irreverent.”

Tarr could face up to three years in prison.
