Edawn Louis Coughman is a former NFL player and business owner who has been charged with a “Jussie Smollet-type” MAGA hoax.

Mr. Coughman owns “Create and Bake Restaurant” and “Coughman’s Creamery,” where police were called to investigate a robbery and racist “MAGA” vandalism crime.

When police arrived at the restaurant, they found signs of a robbery, along with racial slurs and “MAGA” spray-painted on the walls.

However, it didn’t take long for police to figure out that it wasn’t an actual robbery and vandalism crime that took place…it was a hoax pulled off by Mr. Coughman to collect insurance money and trash Trump supporters.

A former NFL player is being charged for a racial hoax that police say he perpetrated on his own business in order to file a bogus insurance claim, and blame Trump supporters.

Police who were in the area pulled over a black truck that had the license plate obscured, thinking it might be involved in the robbery.

It turned out to be Coughman.

In his truck, they discovered televisions that looked like they had been pulled out of walls, and became suspicious.

“The brackets were still attached and there was still drywall attached to the brackets, meaning, someone took them off very quickly,” said Cpl. Michele Pihera.

Clearly, Mr. Coughman is not the brightest bulb in the box – most of these narcissistic hoax artists aren’t, which is why they’re always getting busted for their hoaxes. You just don’t always hear about it, because the mainstream media buries these types of stories.

Police also say that Coughman had spray-paint on his hands, and that the paint on the racial slurs in his restaurant was still fresh when they got there.

“He had reported this incident to his insurance company prior to officers conducting that first pull-over,” Pihera explained.

“He was attempting to leave that shopping center when our officers conducted that felony stop. Everything lined up for this perfect arrest,” she added.

He was charged with insurance fraud, for tampering with his license plate, and for making a false report.

Coughman was released on bond, but police say he may face additional charges. [Blaze]
