Iowa City Arsonist Witness Looks Remarkably Similar To The GEICO Caveman Guy

Police in Iowa City, Iowa are on the hunt for an arsonist who allegedly burnt down an apartment building a week ago. As a few tipsters have shrewdly pointed out, the prime witness in the investigation, and the possible suspect, bears a striking resemblance to the caveman from those awful GEICO commercials and that much more awful short-lived TV series.

Iowa City's KCRG-TV reports that the witness is "an older white man, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, with a beard and long hair," and Sgt. Denise Brotherton believes the suspect is "a transient man who may not be from the area." The fire left about a dozen people homeless (or transient, if that's the word we're using now), and caused about $120,000 in structural damage and $15,000 in content damage.

No one, though, has publicly owned up to the fact that he also looks a lot like the fake prehistoric human who was sitting courtside at a Miami Heat game last week. Your serve, I justice.
