“Sunday Night Football” can be a highlight of the week for some, but this past Sunday has shown to be quite the opposite for retired NFL player Edawn Coughman. His past may have included tackles and touchdowns, but according to events this most recent Sunday, it looks like he’s the only one getting tackled.
He apparently vandalized his own business and made it look like a hate crime. According to police, he’s been arrested and charged with false report of a crime, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate.
A trend in recent years for struggling businesses is to file for insurance claims. Although many businesses have improperly provided for themselves, some feel self-harm to their business is the proper choice. But is it? Of course not, insurance fraud can lead one into spending nearly 5 years in prison.
This too, seemed to be the proper choice for Coughman. Coughman owns a few small businesses in the Atlanta area, and late Sunday night a call came to 911 from a witness reporting a black vehicle with no license plate leaving Coughman’s business in quite a hurry. Police interrogated Coughman, but he claimed his innocence. When entering into the property, there were torn up cushion seats, broken glass, graffiti covering the perimeter, and cable wires cut. But why?
Coughman ended his NFL career 3 years ago. Although he played for several different teams, he remained on the practice and off-season team for each of these NFL teams. What does that do to his paycheck? Well, all we can say is he isn’t going to be celebrating at Disneyland after this year’s Super Bowl. Already in a financially difficult spot, Coughman owned two homes and his businesses — and was not doing well with either.
Innocent until proven guilty may be the case, but when the same vehicle with black spray paint is found in your driveway immediately after a crime was reported, there has to be questions. EyeDetect is a lie detection innovation that can lead to determining if this offensive lineman is guilty of fraud. It can literally detect deception from someone’s eyes and change the game of deception. Things aren’t always as they appear to be and to verify the truth and expose the lie, we need EyeDetect as part of our game plan.
