Father, son arrested after NFL-inspired bar fight

It’s always good for fathers and sons to spend time together. Except when they are spending time together beating people up.

Via Philly.com, 56-year-old Christopher Hoffman and his 32-year-old son, Brittan Holland, face assault charges after a fight at Joe’s Taven in South Jersey moved outside. The incident reportedly began over an argument about the Eagles.

Hoffman, who was charged with third-degree aggravated assault, and Holland, charged with second-degree assault and still in custody, fled in a vehicle after the fight. The two unnamed victims were located inside the bar, reportedly covered in blood.

Hoffman and Holland apparently have found common ground in their mutual dislike of the Eagles. Hoffman was wearing Steelers slippers, and Holland said he’s a Cowboys fan.

Given those choices, it’s surprising that father hasn’t already killed son, or vice-versa.

    Sounds like a good time.
    Always fun to get arrested.
    Plus it enhances your resume, as employers love potential hires with arrests on their record.

    The one huge question I have from reading this article is, “Who goes to a bar wearing slippers?”

    No one ever accused NFL fans of being intelligent.

    I had the same question. Maybe it a Pittsburg thing.

    They should just be glad they didnt run into McCoy and his buddies.

    The Steelers fan. Because it matches his Steelers underwear and his Steelers tube sox, Steelers jersey, and Steelers cap, which matches his girlfriend’s/wife’s Steeler earrings and tattoos.

    I’m finding it hard to believe a Cowboys and a Steelers fan could beat up Eagles fans, especially in south Jersey.

  15. A happy green parrot says: Apr 10, 2017 10:06 AM

    Kudos to Florio for the pic choice.

  16. jianningwu says: Apr 10, 2017 10:09 AM

    Almost as though a Father and Son couldn’t have any other issues. It must be that they are Eagles fans. /s

    It’s really stupid from a distance when this type of thing happens… BUT… I can’t say that I have never wound up in a pretty heated situation over the NFL too… It’s crazy how emotionally attached and involved (we) fans can become over our respective favorite teams, ESPECIALLY, when you add a little booze!

    If you wear slippers to a bar you have given up all rights to call out anybody over anything.

  19. citizenstrange says: Apr 10, 2017 10:21 AM

    and my slippers are duds
    all covered in beer suds
    somewhere in the swamps of Jersey

  20. justintuckrule says: Apr 10, 2017 10:39 AM

    Put me on that jury defense counsel. I’m sure the eagles fans that got their rears kicked totally deserved it.

    “Hoffman was wearing Steelers slippers.”

    I know this has already been commented on, but goodness how must it feel to get your ass whipped by some shmuck wearing his slippers in public on a Saturday night out?

  22. holidlove says: Apr 10, 2017 10:46 AM

    Florio should start a new arrest counter, dedicated to NFL-inspired bar fights.

    ALSO, who gets into a football-related bar fight, on a Thursday night, during the offseason?

    Classic case of an internet tough forgetting he couldn’t hide behind his keyboard after saying dumb things. Love the slippers….

    probably had just woken up from the previous night’s binge and was still wearing the same clothes

    You might be a redneck if…

  27. amanistumor says: Apr 10, 2017 11:14 AM

    Can we just build a wall around Jersey already?

  28. sportoficionado says: Apr 10, 2017 11:26 AM

    A Cowboys and Steelers fan walk into a bar, see annoying south jersey eagles fans,and..Roadhouse. You will not truly appreciate this story unless you’ve spent time in the Philly/Jersey area.

    This sounds like the tv show shameless but for real

  30. dynastypats says: Apr 10, 2017 11:49 AM

    Sounds like Robert De Niro and BradleyCooper In Silver Lining’s Playbook.

  31. greg2geez says: Apr 10, 2017 12:31 PM

    Typical Eagles fans, can’t back it up.

  32. ak185 says: Apr 10, 2017 12:36 PM

    10/10 on the image choice, Florio. Just superb

  33. lambeaudungbarn says: Apr 10, 2017 1:04 PM
