Police in Prince George’s County, Md., have arrested a man on felony fraud charges for impersonating Eagles quarterback Vince Young.

Stephan Pittman, 33, of Fort Washington, was arrested without incident, police said, and will face extradition to Washington, D.C. The Washington police also were involved in serving the warrant.

In an interview with WUSA-TV earlier this week, a man claiming to be Pittman has denied the allegations.

Young said Monday that the man was attempting to solicit money for the Vince Young Foundation and make inappropriate advances toward young women in the Washington area. Young said the man has appeared at hospitals to take picture with children, claiming to be Young.
