Terrance West, a running back currently with the Baltimore Ravens, was visiting the Metropole, a South Beach hotel infamous for hosting the second season of The Jersey Shore, on February 27 with a friend. The pair chatted up two women but then parted ways.

The suit claims the women then went to the hotel’s front desk and asked for a key to West’s room. Amazingly, the staffer complied. The woman were given a key and led to the room by a bellman and escort. Once inside, they swiped two Rolex watches worth almost $50,000 and made off.

An hour later he was robbed again.

Alex Washington

Late Saturday, around 11:20 p.m., accused bank robber Alex Washington walked on out of the jail by pretending to be another inmate who had just secured a $100,000 bond; jailers didn’t notice he was missing until an hour later. Washington and the other inmate — who had, coincidentally, been booked on identity theft charges — switched identities by swapping wristbands, similar to those used at hospitals, Sheriff Henry Trochesset told the Houston Press.

Bleeding everywhere. I’m going to hurt you or kill you.” These comments eerily foreshadowed the moment when she was hit by a bullet with her name on it. Westword has the story.
