While James Harrison was curiously quiet Thursday night in Cleveland, his mother was unleashing hell elsewhere in Ohio.
Mildred Harrison was cited for misdemeanor assault by Akron police, according the Akron Beacon-Journal. The 62-year-old woman was at the center of a football game viewing party gone bad.
James Harrison grew up in the Akron area and went to Kent State. A local VFW threw a party with more than 50 people Thursday night to watch the game with Mildred and celebrate the local hero.
Sometime around 10 PM, the party turned violent according to police. (This was about the same time Steelers fans started to worry their season was ending.) Several witnesses told police they were “pushed, punched and struck with beer bottles.”
We’re not exactly CSI: Akron, but something tells us Mildred and other Steelers fans in attendance got into it with some Browns backers. Two other people, Shovonne Johnson-Roper, 39, and Ross Johnson, 27, were charged with felonious assault after the fracas.
Mildred and James Harrison Sr. are retired and live in Akron.
With that in mind, we’d recommend anyone that battled with Mildred Thursday skip town for a while. You messed with the wrong family.
