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.

  1. 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.

  2. he mustve been an absentee father if he has his mothers last name….nice way to make up the time hes missed

  3. Different last names, different favorite teams. Dude prob grew up calling somebody else dad and just recently reconnected with his derelect biological father.

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

    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.

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

  7. 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!

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

  9. “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?

  10. 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?

    Typical Steeler and Cowboy clowns!

    not a fan of any of these teams but as far as violent fans goes Philly fans probably top the last right after raider fans.

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

  13. 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.
