Blue Man Group Denies Arrested Man Was Member

The Blue Man Group has issued a statement on the arrest of one of its alleged members last night for performing a public sex act. According to the Blue Man Group, via a press release:

Published reports today inaccurately identified a man named Darren Stephens who was arrested in Chicago as a "Blue Man Group actor."

No individual by the name of Darren Stephens has ever been employed by Blue Man Group as a performer or in any other capacity.
Okay, so this clears that up. But this begs the question: just how the hell did this allegation come up? Did Stephens simply claim to work for the group or was he actually wearing blue paint when he was arrested.
