Pence never officially reported the scooter stolen and none of the people who were involved in returning it are being investigated about its disappearance.
Joe Day, who serves as the Giants’ team chef and also builds custom scooters for players on the side, tweeted this from his personal Twitter account on Wednesday evening …
