Guy From KY Get’s Busted for Faking Being Handicapped and Begging for Money [VIDEO]


Dubbed the “Bogus Beggar,” Gary Thompson get’s around in a wheelchair and tricks people into giving him money by making them feel sorry for him. He makes $60,000 – $100,000 a year begging. The only problem is, Thompson isn’t as handicapped as the people he fools assumes he is.

Outside of a Lexington, Kentucky police station after a press conference about his begging ways, Thompson admitted his sob story is not real and that he’s even done the same thing when he lived in Austin, Texas.

He in fact was in a bad accident once where his mother won $2.5 million in an lawsuit against Honda years ago. Thomspon talks with a slur, and moves around in a wheelchair because he has trouble walking, but his arms and speech are actually in perfect working condition. He even say’s he has a degree in Speech Language Pathology.

In the video Thompson says, “I appreciate you guys busting me,” and going as far as saying, “Yeah, I’m really good at it, really good. I clear about 100,000 dollars a year doing this.” “I am normal, it just helps to be mentally handicapped.”
