The Appleton Post-Crescent reported Tuesday that a 36-year-old woman was so upset the Packers lost Sunday she actually choked her daughter.
Police were called about 8:15 p.m. Sunday to a Grand Chute hotel where the girl told police her mother grabbed her by the neck during the football game. The woman was drinking alcohol and became upset because the team was losing. The girl said that after the Packers lost, her mother choked her again with enough force that the girl couldn’t breathe, and her mother said, “Do you want to die?” the criminal complaint says.
Police saw red marks and scratches on the girl’s neck.
The woman also threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp, and tried to punch her husband in the face, according to the report. After reading this, I may have to reconsider my stance that soccer fans are the craziest in the world. We knew Packers fans were absurdly dedicated to their team, but this is going waaaayyy too far.
And no, despite what you may think, this was not the couple at hand.
