State Attorney Will Review Stolen Bike Case

This is the one I linked earlier where the university dean was implicated in a stolen bike case. Now Tampa Bay Online is reporting there may be charges filed:

“Abdul Rao, a senior associate vice president for the university, had admitted to taking the bike outside the Byrd Alzheimer’s Center last week – an act caught on video that spread virally on YouTube – but said he planned to return it.”

Let’s get this straight: So it was outside the Alzheimer’s Center, eh? And you’re saying you were going to return it but forgot to, eh?

OMG! University Dean Investigated in Stolen Bike

Making the rounds: a University of South Florida dean who makes $384,000 a year is caught on camera in an incident police are investigating. The dean pleads “lapse in judgment” but his explanation begs the question: If he was so concerned about helping his comrade, why didn’t he just buy him a new or used bike? Not like he’s hurting for cash…

It’s such an obvious question, yet the St. Pete reporter apparently didn’t ask him.
