Texas man, 25, poses as Harvey evacuee, stars for HS hoops team

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley posed as a 17-year-old Hurricane Harvey refugee in August when he enrolled as a freshman under the name Rashun Richardson at Skyline High School in Dallas.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley was arrested on Friday on a charge of tampering with government records.

"This school year our district welcomed evacuees displaced by Hurricane Harvey". And the mother of a 14-year-old classmate of Gilstrap-Portley says the 25-year-old also dated her daughter while pretending to be a Hillcrest student. Spokesperson Robyn Harris said he told them he was homeless and had come to Dallas alone from Houston.

NBC reported Texas federal law exempts people who claim to be homeless or an evacuee from natural disasters from requiring personal identification documents to enroll. Gilstrap-Portley may have scammed his way in with just immunization and physical records, a district rep says.

The last time the impostor teen showed up for class was April 25.

Oil near multi-year highs on Iran sanctions
US President Donald Trump on May 8 announced that the US was withdrawing from a 2015 deal negotiated by the Obama administration. One of the reasons why the price of oil has been inching up has been, in fact, the prospect of losing Iran's oil supply.

Gilstrap-Portley, who apparently had a moderately successful stint as a guard for Dallas Christian College's basketball team from 2013-2014, got his wish when he landed a starting role on Hillcrest's team.

He has no previous criminal history.

He reportedly scored 17 points in Hillcrest's first-round playoff loss this spring. The source said Gilstrap-Portley was discovered as an imposter when his former coach saw him playing for Hillcrest.

"He was fairly savvy to be able to utilise that type of position, knowing that we were accepting Harvey students". After learning about this situation, we immediately notified district and local authorities and necessary actions have been taken.
