According to NBC Dallas Forth Worth, Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley allegedly claimed he was a displaced refugee of Hurricane Harvey and enrolled as a freshman at Skyline High School last fall under the pseudo identity of 17-year-old Rashun Richardson. No, really, a grown-ass adult has been accused of posing as a 17-year-old to play basketball.
