Woman Loitering at Mets Stadium Claims to Be Tebow's Girlfriend
   (Port St. Lucie Police Department)

On Feb. 26, the day Tim Tebow arrived for the New York Mets' Minor League Baseball camp at First Data Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla., a woman arrived at the stadium early in the morning, hung around all day, and asked lots of questions about Tebow. That prompted staff members to report her to police, but 36-year-old Michelle Marie Thompson had an explanation when they arrived to question her: She told them she's in a relationship with Tebow, TCPalm reports. Making her story even more believable: Police reported that they found a sticker on her driver's license reading, "I [heart symbol] Jesus/Tim Tebow."

But, when police asked the Colorado woman to specify what type of relationship she meant, she said it wouldn't be appropriate to say; when asked if it was a friendly, platonic, romantic, or matrimonial relationship, she claimed "all of the above" while giggling. She went so far as to claim that her current address was the same as Tebow's in Jacksonville, because they live together, and she gave police a Jacksonville address, Action News Jax reports. Police told her to leave the stadium and not return, but two days later she allegedly did; she was arrested that time and charged with trespassing. (More weird crimes stories.)
