In the latest example of sports fandom gone very, very wrong a woman allegedly choked out her 11-year-old daughter last Sunday because she was angry that the Green Bay Packers were getting beaten by the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to the Appleton Post-Crescent, a 36-year-old mother was charged with felony child abuse and misdemeanor counts of bail jumping and disorderly conduct following a drunken attack on her daughter. The abuse stemmed, apparently, from the woman growing irate over the way that the Chiefs were about to hand the Packers their first loss of the NFL season.
The cops were called in at approximately 8:15 p.m. to the Grand Chute hotel, reports indicate, where the victim told authorities that her mother grabbed her by the throat both during and after the game. The mother in question is said to have been drinking throughout.
Not content with just allegedly assaulting her daughter, the woman -- as per what her husband told the police -- also “threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp and tried to punch him in the face” because she was so distraught over her team’s misfortunes.
