A fan punches a woman during the Jets-Patriots game over the weekend and new details have surfaced surrounding the assailant. On Oct. 22, Fox Sports reported that Jets' fan Kurt Paschke, 38, from Long Island punched a female Patriots' fan in the face during Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium.
"The video shows one Jets fan, sporting a Wayne Chrebet jersey, in a skirmish apparently on the way out of MetLife Stadium. As some others move him away from the fracas, a female who appears to be a New England fan kept after him. He responded by apparently and reportedly punching her in the face," Fox Sports reports.
The fan punches the woman after the two were mouthing off to one another -- but for a man to punch a woman in the face... that's serious. Looking further into the case, the media has learned that Paschke has a history of violence. He served time in jail after being convicted of killing someone in the 90's. Several details about that murder have surfaced including one particularly bothersome claim.
"The family of the teen killed in the stabbing, Henri Ferrer, believes Paschke did only three years because his father was a Suffolk County police officer," Fox Sports reports.
The fan punches woman story has been trending online for days. The New Jersey State Police are investigating and Paschke will likely be facing charges. And for the record, his mother said that it's her son who is the victim.
