Modell's CEO Undercover Visit to Dick's Sporting Goods

Throughout history, we've always heard stories of something like this happening and not ending well. Today, Mitchell Modell (Modell's Sporting Goods CEO) decided to march into Dick's Sporting Goods in an attempt to gain information that could give a competitive edge against his competitor. He pretended to be a senior executive at Dick's who visited the store in response to a court-filed complaint.

Modell was a former star of CBS's reality show "Undercover Boss", but it seems like he has taken the impersonation into the real world as well. He was able to gain access to the private back rooms to find information regarding Dick's business models. Dick's is seeking compensation for the damages caused, and asked the court to prevent Modell or any of his employees from entering non-public areas of the store from here on.
