New Orleans Saints fan arrested after altercation with Bears chairman

Published Add your comment

Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints have both had tough seasons so far to say the least. And on Monday Night Football the two teams played out a terrible game, with the Saints eventually prevailing as the better of two evils.

But even worse than the events on the field, which started with two fumbles by each offense in the opening two drives of the game, off the field a New Orleans Saints fan was arrested following an altercation with the Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey.

Police arrested Richard Kohnke, a 58-year-old Saints fan, for allegedly getting into a physical altercation with the Bears chairman before the start of the MNF game.

Wrong person to fight with

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Saints fan shoved the Bears chairman after an argument broke out over seating. It's believed that that McCaskey arrived to find fans in his seat before the authorities were called following a scuffle.

Fighting with the chairman of a football team is a surefire way to get yourself kicked out of the stadium or even arrested, just like Richard Kohnke did. At least the Saints came away with the win for Kohnke.
