- Maybe we should forget this season ever happened.
The Associated Press
is reporting that police say this fight was not a brawl between Mohr and Chiefs fans. From the report: "State Police Sgt. Brian Polite says Lee, 35, was first charged with simple assault but charges were upgraded after 23-year-old James Mohr's condition worsened. Polite says the Queens, N.Y., resident got into a brief scuffle with some men, and the skirmish broke up on its own. Polite says Lee then 'came out of the blue and punched Mohr in the face.' Polite says the incident 'was not a Jets-Chiefs melee.' He says witnesses told troopers there was no indication they were Kansas City fans."
Proof that the Chiefs' season cannot end soon enough has arrived: The New York Post
is reporting that Kansas City fans mocked Jets fans with 9/11 taunts and kicked the crap out of NY fan James Mohr following the Jets 37-10 victory on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Yeah, this season is not one for the ages.
According to The Post, a pack of Chiefs fans shouted "Fuck New York" and "You all deserved what happened on 9/11!" to New Yorkers. Mohr, a 23-year-old physical-education teacher decked out in Jets clothing, took umbrage to the insults in a stadium parking lot. The paper reports that up to seven fans — one was wearing a Chiefs jersey — jumped Mohr as he walked alone from one group of friends to another, and the fans began beating him. The Post reports that he "suffered a fractured jaw, cheekbone and eye socket in the beatdown, and also has bleeding on the brain," and needed hours of surgery.
But, wait! It gets worse. Mohr's sister, Anna, told The Post that there's a reason her brother might take issue with 9/11 taunts. "Our other brother is a fireman, and my father is retired FDNY, so you can understand why a 9/11 comment would especially irk him," she told the paper. Police arrested one New Jersey man, and an investigation is ongoing.
