This excerpt is from Jon Falk's book "If These Walls Could Talk". Jon will share these stories and more as part of the Michigan Men's Football Experience.
Bo was called during practice to the Michigan Locker Room. When he arrived, he found kicker Pat Moons surrounded by Ann Arbor PD with guns drawn. Moons had been mis-identified as having robbed a bank in Ann Arbor.
Bo was appraised of the situation by an officer who told Bo that Moons had been “positively identified” as the robber.
Per Jon Falk the following then occurred:
“Bo walked up to Moons and stared straight into his eyes.
‘Moons,’ he said. “Did you just rob a damn bank?’
‘No sir’ [Moons replied]
Bo then turned to all the police officers and raised his arms as if he had just cracked a case easier than a peanut shell.
‘There you have it men,' he said confidently. ‘Pat Moons said he did not rob the bank. You have the wrong man. Now all of us have to get back to practice.’”
Moons had been mistakenly idenfitied as he hurried from the bank to get to practice.
