Eagles fan's prosthetic leg returned after being stolen outside game
An Armed Forces veteran and Philadelphia Eagles fan known for performing outside of the team's game, had his prosthetic leg stolen by another fan before the game, but was reunited with the limb later that night.
Sonny Forriest Jr. removed the left leg prosthesis during the pregame as it had begun to ache, when another Eagles fan, described as an intoxicated women in her 20's, jumped in his lap while he was singing, according to NBC 10 Philadelphia.
Forriest said the women broke his microphone and offered to pay for a replacement, but he declined. However, when she left the veteran realized she had grabbed the prosthetic leg and ran away with it.
Police discovered the leg around midnight and brought it back to Forriest, who told reporters he does not want charges pressed, but hopes the woman considers the consequences of her actions.
Philadelphia police say they do have video of the women who took the leg, but no arrests have been made yet.
