Former Penn State commit Isheem Young broke his previous radio silence and posted on Instagram Monday evening a screenshot of another Instagram post from a different account saying Young’s December arrest was a misunderstanding and the user was responsible for the armed robbery. Young, a former star at Imhotep, was arrested last month for an armed robbery at Wawa over the summer.
The user’s handle was not completely decipherable but it appears to be @famoe_fi, who Young follows on Instagram.
The user explained that a text from him to Young that said “good look well needed bro” was interpreted by detectives as Young being involved in the robbery. Instead, the user reportedly meant that it was in reference to Young lending him a sweatshirt. In addition to admitting to the robbery and would take the stand at court to admit it, the user clarified that Young “had nothing to do with the robbery.”
At the beginning of his confession, the user apologized to Young and others for “almost ruining his life.” The caption read “Sorry for the inconvenience.”
Micah Parsons, a member of Penn State’s 2018 recruiting class that Young was committed to before being removed following his arrest, tweeted that a screenshot of the Instagram posts and that Young “will be back in no time.”
