Did Yankees Fan Capture Gaddafi?

Reports are still unclear how the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was killed today but there is a photo of a man in a New York Yankees cap who says he caught the dictator and an account filed by a reporter to the BBC as he saw it:

A fighter in Sirte has told the BBC his account of the reported capture.  Mohammed, a young fighter in his 20's, wearing a blue T-shirt and New York Yankees baseball cap, said he found the colonel hiding in a hole in the ground in the city of Sitre.  He told the BBC that the former Libyan leader begged him "Don't shoot."

The BBC reporter said," I have spoken to the man who says that he captured him... he was brandishing a golden pistol."  The young man claims he confiscated the hand gun from Gaddafi during the capture.

We don't really know if the young man is a Yankees fan, but the fancy pistol might give him a lot of cred in the NBA.
