Mass. man sees debt to Brady repaid by stranger

BOSTON (AP) — A convicted bank robber who says he had to
panhandle to repay a debt to New England Patriots quarterback
Tom Brady has had his debt erased by a local businessman.

Dennis Paiva was ordered by a court to pay $4,000 after selling
Brady’s expensive flower boxes for scrap metal, mistakenly
believing they’d been put behind Brady’s Boston condominium as
trash in May 2008.

Dan Greenwald, the owner of a Burlington ad agency, said he
decided to pay the restitution after reading about Paiva’s
plight in the Boston Herald on Friday.

Greenwald said it seemed as if Paiva, who says he can’t work
because of recent surgery, got “the rawest of raw deals.”

The 61-year-old Paiva said Greenwald’s gift was like “a dream
come true.”
