THIS IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

If you've got warrants, don't appear on camera or take a weekend job where you will appear on camera in front of millions. That's our best advice to whomever is getting a custom escort from local authorities here following the South Carolina/Georgia games.

The image first surfaces at OnlineAthens and has gone viral on message boards, mostly because it seems to confirm what every one thinks about the SEC anyway, but it's not what it seems. According to our source (yea! a veritable source!) the man is most likely one of the chain gang, an irony in itself, and not an SEC official. The chain gangs are hired by the schools hosting the games, so this is not--we repeat--NOT an SEC official being carted away immediately following a game.

Not that we haven't supported that idea from time to time...(HT: Micah.)
