Kfir Jackson, a co-owner of the Brazos Valley Bombers (summer collegiate; Texas Collegiate League), was arrested Friday; he allegedly videotaped female members of the team’s Bombshells squad after asking them to change into team uniforms.
On Monday Jackson allegedly asked members of the squad to come in try the new uniforms. They then went to Bryan police and reported the incident, saying they suspected they were being videotaped while changing into the new uniforms. On Wednesday police searched Bombers team offices and seized computers and video equipment; on Friday Jackson was arrested after an analysis of his hard drive allegedly showed images consistent with the allegations.
Jackson has left the team, according to owner Uri Geva. Geva issued the following statement to a local radio station:
“In regards to Mr. Jackson’s alleged allegations, I would respond that the Bombers are more than just one person, and are about a mission statement that is affordable family fun. As an organization we were shocked of these allegations and have taken the necessary steps to ensure another successful season is on the way and we will continue being a large part of the community. We are excited about the upcoming 2011 TCL All-Star Game and another playoff run and are thankful for all the support of the community.”
(Editor’s note: August Publications, the parent company of Ballpark Digest, is a client of Infinity Pro Sports, another company owned by Geva.)
