TOBY IMPOSTER CAN'T FOOL COUNTRY FANS

Last week at an elementary school in Leavenworth, Kansas, a man claiming to be Toby Keith showed up to take pictures, sign autographs and eat lunch with the students. But some folks-who no doubt were country fans and knew what Toby really looked like-got suspicious. NBC News reported that school staff called a local radio station and confirmed that Toby was not scheduled to be in the area that day. The station e-mailed the school a picture of Toby, and staffers confirmed that the man was an imposter. The real Toby, who was in Nashville at the time, said he felt bad that people were misled. "I do apologize if I hurt anybody's feelings or anything like that," said Toby. "I didn't mean to hurt anybody's feelings. I'm just concerned that this man came into a school filled with children and misrepresented himself." Pat Kitchens, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department, told the Leavenworth Times that his department was contacted, but it appears no law was broken because there was no financial gain.
