Jabar Gaffney denies vandalizing Lito Sheppard’s car

Former NFL players Jabar Gaffney and Lito Sheppard played together in high school and at the University of Florida, but any friendship that may have existed between the two men has soured over the years.

Sheppard was at dinner at a restaurant in Jacksonville Beach, Florida last week and left to find that his car had been vandalized while he was eating. Sheppard watched surveillance video taken by the restaurant and, per a police report, found that he recognized Gaffney and his girlfriend as the vandals.

“Gaffney retrieved some type of tool and a container from the suspect’s vehicle, walked over to the passenger’s side of the victim’s vehicle near the gas tank, and pried it open,” the report said, via First Coast News. “Gaffney then poured an unknown substance from the container into the gas tank … The unknown female walked around the vehicle and stabbed all of the tires with a sharp object.”

Gaffney has not been arrested and his attorney said, via Jacksonville.com, that his client is not involved.

“He said he hasn’t even seen Lito in three years and he’s very aggravated that his name is coming up in this,” attorney Seth Adam Schwartz said. “He doesn’t know why this is happening.”

Sheppard said that he and Gaffney, who was arrested for domestic battery in 2017 and on a drug charge in 2016, had a falling out in 2012 and that his car sustained some $14,000 in damage during the incident.

    ==============================================

    It may be happening because….. he was caught on video?

  2. So what was the substance? Maybe Lito was just giving him some free gas?

  3. Jabar, Jabar, Jabar. No one said you saw Lito. They’re claiming he saw you. In video. Vandalizing his car. And here’s the thing. Not only do they have video but they will use the location services on your phone, and your girlfriend’s phone, to verify your phones were in the vicinity. And they may then use phone records to confirm you were in the vicinity (because it would be hard for you to make a call on your phone without you and your phone being in the same location). And, depending on the make of your car, they will use your car’s data to confirm it was in the area.

    You can’t just talk your way out of this you fool.

  4. People are nuts. The crazy can’t stop creating some sort of drama constantly. They are just obsessed with it. Seems he found the perfect girlfriend for him too. I can only imagine that relationship. Shocker he’s had domestic battery charges too. So happy my life is normal and happy and not filled with bs!

    Thankfully the SCOTUS ruled a warrant is generally required for that now as of last week. The 4th gets a little reprieve from the pressure it has been under.

  7. It always amazes when I read the gf is involved.

    I don’t know about you, but every woman I have ever been with if I talked about doing some stupid crap like this she would never be like “yeah and I’ll help you”

    What kind of low level women do these guys date?😃

    Any long time Patsbfans are not mad at all. We are grateful for the unbelievable success we have had.

    Kudos on a fantastic win by the Eagles.

  9. Crowded parking lot, still daylight, and too thick to realize a restaurant might have surveillance video.

    I’ve seen that video, Gaffney. Not only is there a clear view of what you did, They got a clear view of the vehicle you were driving, idiot.

    Stop nhpatsfan… this is like a full week where I’ve respected your comments. The biggest reason the pats are hated is the idiotic comments from their fans and yes, I’ve read plenty that were respectful and not idiotic and lately you’ve gone from idiotic to not. Please keep it up

    As a football fan I give credit where credit is due. The Eagles outplayed the Pats even with Brady having a career day.

    As a Pats fan, I have loved through many miserable seasons… I appreciate what they have been able to do.

  14. The Patriots gave the game away to the Eagles. Brady plays a better first half, holds on the football in the end and the Eagles are an afterthought today.

    How many normal woman will want a life with someone this screwed up. In time they will lose all the good ones. Only the ugly desperate crazy ones will be left for them! Bottom of the barrel women. If you have this many problems and know you can’t change you will need to settle for the most hideous women….you’re not given much of a choice. Being stupid now and then comes in the male package, being totally screwed up does not lol. They will ruin all the good in their lives and that includes any good relationship

    This is exactly the sittthat a warrant is granted for, thus the SCOTUS decision. If there are grounds you will get your warrant. If not, then you’re invading privacy

    So they get a warrant, Duh!!! what was your point?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Crime committed and captured on video + identification of perpetrators on video by victim = a virtually guaranteed warrant authorization.

  20. Exactly. That’s my point. The decision they made was a good one. You are protected under your privacy rights except when there is probable cause.

  21. ShouldBuffaloStay, My apologies. I know that was your point. I grabbed the wrong comment. I meant to grab notlistinin’s comment whose point was less clear

  22. What a low-life thing to do. Gaffney’s biggest punishment is being the loser that he is.

  23. All good, figured my typo messed up the point lololol situation* and whatever my phone thought I meant were close Hahahaha

    I’m convinced you are an Eagles fan with some type of derangement that causes you to pose as an idiotic Pats fan. Why else would you comment on such random articles about a team that’s not even yours? Re-assess your life you bum.

  25. Pats fans (as if such a thing existed) are so bitter and desperate it’s sad. You have the nerve to read random articles from another team and complain after you cheated your way into 4 super bowls and got a gift handed to you by the biggest bone head decision of all time on the fifth. seriously, the absolute nerve of you people. be gone. stay gone.

    Excuse me but could you please pass the salt. You’re hoarding it. Glad to hear there’s no jealousy.

    ===================================================================
    Stop it…you’re worse for the Patriots brand than Spygate, Deflate-gate, Brady concussion-gate, Butler-gate, Garrapolo-gate combined!!!

  28. Definitely no jealousy. We just won the Super Bowl. I don’t care about your team either way and definitely not enough to ever comment on a random article about them. You probably don’t see the irony in that do you? You commenting on an article about the team I root for and then call me salty/jealous? I’d pass you some Salt, but anymore in your system would be terrible for you at this point.
