You can’t steal another man’s bobblehead. It’s just not cool. Allegedly, that’s just what James Cheatham did to his buddy Brian Mitchell. This bobblehead wasn’t your everyday run-of-the-mill Felipe Lopez nodder though, court documents valued the “1st Generation Reds Mascot Bobblehead” at $5,000. According the Mitchell, its value is closer to $12,000.
Cheatham, who is currently serving a prison term for another robbery, plead guilty after DNA evidence connected him to the crime. In spite of the plea, he maintains his innocence:
“In all honesty,” Cheatham told the judge, “I didn’t take nothing from dude.”
Two years were added to Chetham’s current sentence.
