"Piggyback Bandit" Arrested In Iowa


The "Piggyback Bandit" is in trouble again--this time in Iowa.

According to the Quad City Times, Sherwin Shayegan was arrested at a grocery store yesterday in Bettendorf for disturbing customers.

Shayegan, knows as the "piggyback bandit," is known for attending sporting events and jumping on athletes backs.

He caused a stir in Bismarck last February after attending local basketball and hockey games, jumping on athletes backs.

He tried to gain entrance to a locker room dressed in this uniform.

Since then he's been the subject of stories done by ESPN and The New York Times.

Shayegan was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct and released on $300 dollars bond.

Originally from the state of Washington, he has been banned from athletic events in North Dakota, Montana, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington.
