Brett Favre made sure that it wasn’t a fun Sunday for the Packers faithful at Lambeau Field — at least the fans that were still around to see the game.
13 people were arrested at the contest, and 43 were ejected from the stadium. The police confirmed that the number of ejections was higher than normal.
10 of the 13 arrests were for unlawful conduct. (Booing Favre did not qualify.) There was one arrest that included unlawful
conduct and a probation hold, one for possession of marijuana and one
for possession of marijuana, possession of a false ID and underage
drinking. (The trifecta!)
The crowd behavior has caused some navel-gazing in Green Bay. On Tuesday, the Green Bay Press-Gazette has scheduled an online chat to discuss fan conduct at the game.
I’m not sure whether it’s awesome or bizarre that there’s actually enough interest in the issue to hold such a thing. Get your questions in early.
