Thousands of Facebook users accused former "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe of being a dirty crook on Tuesday after Oregon police released security footage of his "doppelganger" robbing a bank.
After a Medford, Ore. Chase Bank was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday evening, Medford police posted security camera footage of the suspect on Facebook. Users quickly pointed out that the suspect bore quite a resemblance to Rowe, down to his trademark ball cap.
On Monday, Medford updated its citizens and said it has released an "arrest warrant" for the TV personality.
On Wednesday, Rowe took to Facebook to plead his innocence. Though he admitted to visiting Medford in the past, he claims to have an alibi as to his whereabouts during the time of the robbery.
Rowe hasn't been shy about posting on Facebook in the past. Recently, he's discussed at an MSNBC anchor who took issue with a guest's use of the term "hard work," and Bernie Sanders' plan for free college tuition.
