📈🎒💉Rashun Richardson 34 points 15 Rebounds

A 25-year-old Texas man was arrested on Friday after he allegedly posed as a would-be high school basketball star for months and dated a 14-year-old girl.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley of Mesquite, Texas, was arrested and charged with tampering with government records after he enrolled at two Dallas, Texas, schools as a 17-year-old boy named Rashaun Richardson, spokesperson for the Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD), Robyn Harris, tells PEOPLE.

He was booked into the Dallas County Jail and posted bond, according to the Dallas Morning News. An attorney for him was not listed.

Gilstrap-Portley had deceived school administrators following Hurricane Harvey using the fact that the storm laid waste to homes and schools to his advantage when he enrolled at Hillcrest High School in October 2017, Harris says.

“We have kind of looked at this as a perfect storm as it became a very complex story toward this individual who posed as a student,” says Harris.

Gilstrap-Portley enrolled first at Skyline High School before he was transferred to Hillcrest High School as a Hurricane Harvey evacuee.

“He was a normal student, he was not in any sort of misconduct challenges. He was truly a good student by all indications,” says Harris. “He was a little low-key. They now believe, more in hindsight, that there was a reason for that.”
