â†µUh ... that'll show 'em. â†µ
â†µUnfortunately, the best incident hasn't made its way to any video I can find, and that's a Jets fan being Tasered prior to Sunday's AFC Championship against the Colts. Details via the New York Post: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥ Cops sacked a Jet diehard before the big game, throwing him against a squad car outside the stadium and then zapping him with a Taser — all while the young man’s dad watched in disbelief, witnesses said. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥The arresting officer claimed Patrick Mallon, 26, had been belligerent and threw beer at other tailgate revelers. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥But Mallon told The Post after his late-night hearing, “I did not throw beer at anybody. I was angry with the police for trying to go through the crowd like that. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥ “But I’m more angry with what they did to me.” â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µMallon did eight hours in jail and his dad paid a $150 fine. The whole thing goes away if he behaves for two years. At least Mallon's dad happens to be a criminal defense lawyer from New Jersey. â†µâ†µ
