Packers Fan Arrested For "Jersey" Assaulting Son (With Video)

Thursday, January 17, 2008


You people are going to hear about this one all day, but I figured I'd put it up as well. A Pardeeville, Wisconsin man was charged with disorderly conduct last Saturday for taping a jersey to his son after the kid refused to wear it during the Packers win over Seattle. From WiscTV.com via Cake Rocks the Party....

Sheriff's Lt. Wayne Smith said Mathew Kowald was cited for disorderly conduct for the incident involving his 7-year-old son at their home in Pardeeville this past weekend. Kowald was accused of restraining the boy for an hour with tape and also taping a jersey onto him during that time.

The father was arrested on Monday after his wife called authorities. Kowald was taken to the county jail and held until Wednesday, when he pleaded no contest, paid a fine of $186 and was released.

Kowald defended his actions in a phone call to WISC-TV, saying that he did tie his child up but that it was in a playful manner.
Wow....sounds like you were really joking around. What's even better than the description is the video of the news report where they get audio from Mr. Kowald. At one point the station has to bleep out a word describing his son (sorry for the quality, but it's worth a few)....



You stay classy Green Bay!

$186 fine? The jersey probably cost that much -- those things are expensive.

Whose jersey was it?

Well, he is from Pardeeville, WI. Sounds about right.

Man, if I had a nickel for every time my dad tied me down and taped a jersey on me, then cussed me on TV....I wouldn't have any nickels. Seriously, there should be a licensing process to become a parent.

The kid was so emotionally shattered, he became a Detroit Lions fan.

They bleeped out his name because he is a minor.

This story and the State of West Virginia vs Rich Rodriguez fiasco are just two reasons I prefer baseball. Don't think we'll be hearing about some meth addicted dad taping a Florida Marlins jersey on his kid...
