Does this mean soccer is that exciting or that boring?
Two fans of the visiting Bayern Munich (we’re assuming this is Germany) had to be ejected from the stands at Rhein-Neckar-Arena only 16 minutes into a match last week when they were caught having sex. According to one report, they just pulled down their pants and went at it, while most nearby fans ignored what was going on. Unfortunately security personnel at the stadium could not ignore the public coitus, and the couple was ejected.
So, a fight breaks out in the stands during last Saturday’s game in West Lafayette, Indiana between the Purdue Boilermakers and the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Nothing really new there: there’s usually some kind of altercation at ever major college football game played. The fact that one of the allegedly drunk combatants was a good-looking blond is a little unusual (usually they’re fat, middle-aged guys) but not totally out of the question.
But when the young lady charges is the sister of Notre Dame starting quarterback Tommy Rees? Now THAT doesn’t happen every day, but apparently it did Saturday at Ross-Ade Stadium where university police were called to Section 116 after a fight broke out at about 8:38 pm. At the scene, other fans pointed to Meghan Rees, 21, as the primary culprit and she was immediately escorted from the stadium. Meghan, a student at Miami University of Ohio, was cited for public intoxication and had her angry-looking mug shot (right) taken for good measure. She was reportedly ejected from the stadium before the first quarter was even over! That’s one partying babe.
There has been no official comment from Notre Dame, Coach Brian Kelly or Tommy about the incident. We have also not been able to confirm if Meghan is single or not, but to many of our readers she is definitely “girlfriend material.” Above is Ms. Rees mug shot picture, to the right it is a much better photo from what we believe is her Twitter account.
The officers, of course, did think it WAS their duty to removed someone misbehaving from the stadium and a struggle ensued. Keep in mind, the young man arrested in this case, Andrew Galbo, stands 6’4″ and weighs about 210 lbs. Not massive by football player standards, but on the large side–especially if he’d been drinking–by football fan standards. Not 100% sure what the stadium event staff saw to ask officers to remove Galbo, but whatever it was, was minor compared to brawling with the cops. According to police, Galbo grabbed and tackled an officer and spit in his face before being subdued. Once outside the stadium Galbo allegedly continued to refuse to cooperate, reportedly kneeing an officer three times before being subdued again.
At right, Galbo’s mug shot which shows that he was a little worse for wear after his engagement with officers. Below, a YouTube video that shows some of the action.
