Former Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian should now be leery of the company he keeps more than ever.

He busted his former college teammate and so-called friend Therrian Fontenot burglarizing his home moments after he left a barbecue where the two were having a good time together.

This is the type of struggle that transpires when you don’t make it to the league.

Reports CBS Sports:

Former NFL wide receiver Bernard Berrian was at a barbecue back in April when he got an urgent email: It was his security company alerting him to the fact that a motion sensor had gone off at his locked house.

Berrian, who has a security camera installed at his residence, decided to turn the video on and check things out before calling police.

After turning the video on, Berrian was kind of shocked at what he saw: It was his former college teammate, Therrian Fontenot, who was robbing him.

The two played football together at Fresno State.

For Berrian, the most shocking part of the robbery wasn’t even that Fontenot was the burglar, it was that Fontenot had actually been at the same barbecue with Berrian just a little bit earlier.

“It was crazy because we were all sitting around and he actually left from where we were at to go do it,” Berrian told ABC30.com in Fresno, Calif. “Boom, motion sensor went off, I get an email, so I click on the live cam.”

Berrian said that he could’ve actually talked to Fontenot while the burglary was happening.

“I actually watched him doing it while he was doing it,” said Berrian. “I could have actually spoke to him, I got a microphone on there. I could have told him, ‘I got you,’ while he was doing it.”

Ironically, the only reason Berrian had a security system installed at his home is because there had recently been two other burglaries at his house that police had been unable to solve.

Fontenot will now have to serve six months in jail and Berrian will have to find new friends. Sounds like an even exchange, yeah?
