Iowa Man Accused of Using Local Meteorologist’s Name to Get Dates

A Davenport, IA, man has been caught allegedly using a local meteorologist identity to pick up women online.

Matt Wendt is accused of impersonating KWQC meteorologist Greg Dutra on social media.

According to Gawker, “Matt Wendt’s little plan fell apart when the real Greg Dutra tweeted at his girlfriend on Twitter, and one of Wendt’s prospects started questioning the real Dutra as to why he never mentioned that he was in a relationship.”

The Quad City Times reports Wendt was arrested May 9 and has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor identity theft.
