Michelle Casady of the BRYAN-COLLEGE-STATION (TX) EAGLE reports that the co-Owner of the local Brazos Valley Bombers of the Texas Collegiate Baseball League was arrested Friday on five counts of “improper video recording” and was released from jail Saturday after posting bond of $50,000.
Five members of the team’s “Bombshells” cheerleading squad alerted the cops after recently suspecting they were being videotaped in a changing room.
The computer was located in the same room where the women dressed in team outfits that included halter tops.
Detectives obtained a search warrant and found Jackson’s laptop and a webcam in the changing room.
The computer contained five video recordings showing the Bombshells in various stages of undress.
The accused, Kfir Jackson, has since resigned his post with the team.
If convicted, Jackson faces two years in prison and fines up to $10,000. KBTX reports that the police investigation is still ongoing and that more charges could be forthcoming.
So how did the team’s public relations wizards spin the situation?
They released a statement, that gently broke the news, titled, “Bombers Transition to 2011“:
Bryan-College Station, TX (December 10, 2010) –
As both the holidays and the dawn of winter approach, baseball may not be the first thing on your mind. However, given a few recent developments, the Bombers would like to provide supporters with a few updates for the 2011 season.
Kfir Jackson has voluntarily stepped down from his role in day-to-day management of the Bombers as he attends to personal matters. The organization will remain in good hands, with both President and Owner Uri Geva and General Manager Chris Clark focused on a successful 2011 season. Though the change may require a little adjustment, the entire Bombers family is preparing for a bright future.
Might wanna excise the “remain in good hands” part next time an owner of the team is caught peeping on cheerleaders.
In a radio interview with WTAW, remaining team owner Geva said that none of the cheerleaders who were allegedly videotaped have quit and that he had apologized to the squad for the incident.
Assuming Geva is telling the truth, who can blame the ladies for refusing to walk away from such a coveted and prestigious position?
