Columbus Dispatch reporting vehicle sold for $13k. Still excessively low for the vehicle but the conflicting reports, and questions regarding why it was submitted as $0 a year later, still keeps the pressure on the dealership and the salesman to disclose all the facts and cooperate with any federal investigations that reveal facts...
Former Ohio State linebacker Thaddeus Gibson didn't understand why his purchase of a used Chrysler 300C was listed at $0 in documents disclosed in a media report, since he was still making payments on the vehicle.
Now, newly uncovered documents appear to back up Gibson -- to the tune of $13,700.
In an initial report on Ohio State's investigation of car sales to athletes and their families, the Dispatch cited documents showing a purchase price of $0 for Gibson's car.
But on Wednesday, the newspaper reported it obtained a previous title on the vehicle listing the purchase price as $13,700 for a sale dated June 27, 2007 and financed through Huntington National Bank.
The title listing the purchase price as $0 was dated March 6, 2008 and listed the same bank as the lender, according to the report.
Important to note: car salesman was receiving tickets to sporting events from OSU/players. This would qualify him as a booster, meaning any impropriety, however slight, would take this to Ed Martin town.
