(KPIX 5) — A Bay Area sports anchor is in hot water after he allegedly took a jacket belonging to a Golden State Warriors security official.

In a surveillance video from AT&T Center in San Antonio, a man in red is seen taking a jacket from a chair following a Warriors floor practice session last Thursday.

The man in the video is reportedly Mike Shumann, a former player for the San Francisco 49ers and a longtime anchor and reporter for KGO-TV in San Francisco.

The Athletic web site reported the jacket belongs to Ralph Walker, the Warriors head of security and Stephen Curry’s personal bodyguard.

KGO called Shumann home after it learned of the incident, according to The Athletic. He was not part of the station’s postgame coverage.

The station told The Athletic: “We are taking these allegations very seriously and conducting a full investigation. As a matter of policy, we do not comment about personnel matters.”

    He probably took it to keep someone from stealing it, figuring whoever owned it left it by accident. To assume he intent was to steal it is a conclusion not necessarily supported by the facts.

    1. I agree. Wish news outfits would quit making sensational headlines out of nothing. You really think a sports anchor is desperate enough to “steal” a jacket? Come on. It’s probably as innocent as in the days when you saw someone had left their car headlights on and you turned them off for them. Give me a break.

    2. It seemed like there were dozens of people he could’ve handed the jacket to if his intent was to “keep someone from stealing it.”

      Instead he put it in his bag, out of veiw, and walked off. I am much more inclined to assume the intent is taking it for himself rather than protecting it.

      Perhaps he thought it was a “freebie” since it was left behind. Still no excuse for walking off without saying anything.

  2. Jim Quinn says:

    I wonder if Curry’s bodyguard is armed?

  3. (((Mike Shumann))) a real SF Liberal, ‘nuf said.

  4. the key point would be whether or not he sent it to Lost & Found…. did he? We may never know.

  5. Mike Shumann, is he just another lying, theiving SF lib?

  6. Mike is the best sports news anchor in the Bay Area and an honest man. He would never take anyone’s personal belongings intentionally. This is a non-story.
