Saints fan arrested for allegedly shoving Bears owner George McCaskey
A New Orleans Saints fan was arrested at Solider Field on Monday night after he allegedly shoved Chicago Bears owner George McCaskey.
According to Deanese Williams-Harris of The Chicago Tribune, police and Bears officials say the fan, 58-year-old Richard Kohnke, pushed McCoskey over an argument involving seats. McCaskey supposedly arrived at his seats to find several Saints fans sitting in them, and he went to get stadium security after speaking to one of the fans.
After McCaskey walked away, Kohnke allegedly went after him and shoved him to the ground. A Bears fan then tackled Kohnke, and Kohnke was ejected from the stadium and charged with simple battery.
McCoskey did not require medical attention.
Aren’t the Bears having enough problems in their locker room? The bizarre thing about this story for me is that someone was sitting in the team owner’s seats. You would think stadium security would have its eye on that section.
