Police have person of interest in Wharton impersonation case

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police say a man wanted for cyberstalking may be the same person pretending to be Carolina Panthers left tackle Travelle Wharton.

Age: 28

Height: 6-4  * Weight:* 312

College: South Carolina

Experience: 6th season

A misdemeanor cyberstalking warrant has been issued for Christon Brewer, who has lived in Charlotte and Monroe.

The Panthers announced last week that a Wharton impostor defrauded a handful of people out of about $25,000 in bogus investment scams over the past year.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Sgt. Walter Bowling said Saturday that Brewer used an alias of Travelle Wharton and is a "person of interest" relating to the impersonation investigation of the Panthers player.

No arrests have been made.
