    There's a common theme with Jets fans. They go to a football game and get arrested. Dumbest most obnoxious fans in the league.

    I'd say it was a bit excessive but, it is a Jets fan. ;)

    Is there anywhere a Jets fan can't be arrested?!?

    Jets fans are as bad as the eagles fans!

    So, what exactly was the Jets fan doing?

    The cop said something among "GET THE **** OUT OF MY WAY", but it didn't seem like he was blocking the car...

    That was incredible. Were those even cops or were they security type cops? That man from the looks of the video was standing next to everyone else. Didnt look like he was in anyone's way. Then again, before the recording started, he actually could've been standing in the way, but still, what police officer gets out of their car in a semi hostile environment and yells "You got a ******* problem?!" then immediately gets up in a mans face?

    I'm sorry. City police or security, that video should go into a training video in the segment "How Not To Do Your Job."

    A bit off topic, but has everyone here seen the video of the off duty DC cop that brought a gun to a snowball fight?

    That guy simply got treated the way he did because he was wearing the opposing team's uniform. I can't stand the most Jet fans, but people who abuse their authority is even lower in my book. What did the Jet fan do that warranted those two cops to react the way they did?

    They don't make handcuffs small enough for people like Fireman Ed. He would've escaped anyway by running through their legs and hiding underneath a car somewhere.

    I know exactly what he did. He didn't whimper and cower when they began to berate him.

    I'm telling you, that's exactly what happened.

    I would have preferred a "Rodney King" style beating, but I suppose a totally bogus arrest and tazing for doing absolutely nothing will have to suffice.

    Don't taz me bro

    The cars said "Speedway" Police. They're probably the equivalent of college/university police that work at the Indianapolis Speedway and are used for crowd control at Lucas Oil. My guess is one, if not both, will or should be looking for a new job.

    Jets fan or not, it's a disgusting abuse of authority. That "cop" should have his ***** fired.

    FYI, the guy is suing and it's a huge story in New York.

    Will a Jets fan who prematurely bought tickets to the Super Bowl get arrested next week? We shall see.

    By the way, I'm listening to an interview with the Jets fan in question, his father, and the dirtbag lawyer they've hired. The fan says that he wasn't even tasered, he just "thought" he was tasered. The cop was being a jerk, but no way should this green and white clown get any money.

    I can easily see how this sort of thing happens.

    I pulled up to Ralph Wilson stadium for the Bills-Pats game, and a parking attendant directed me into a lot that was like driving through a post-apocalyptic riot scene. It was like Mad Max in there, with trash cans burning left and right in the middle of the road. I was like, why the hell did he send me in here? There were no parking spots anywhere as they had been taken up by tailgaters, and I was in no man's land. Even worse, there were about 4 cars following behind me, and the idea of backing up after driving a quarter of a mile of swerving around people and their fires, well, that wasn't too good. Finally my road was totally blocked by a about 20 guys. Cops came by, and I asked them what to do--and they said, "tough luck." They were having a tough time getting through themselves on their golf carts (actually, I thought one was going to help me, but he just wanted some info about my car--a Subaru WRX, and after we made small talk about cars, he said, sorry can't help you.) I can totally see how a cop's anger level will rise while driving through a tailgate. I'm not defending the cop, mind you, but knowing what a clusterfrig that scene is, you gotta keep your cool and laugh. I had a British friend go with me to the game, and he had never been to a US football game. When we got roadblocked, I got out of the car and walked toward a huge bus. It was the Guy Fieri roadshow bus (the guy from the Food Network). I just walked inside the party bus--wall to wall people, and really the only women around in the whole lot. I left my British friend outside and he later reported to me that he was scared witless because a bunch of Bills fans were chanting ahole at him for blocking the road, and he was probably nervous because he was used to hooligans. Finally, after finding the guy hosting the party, I asked if he could move some tables next to the bus so I could park and he said yes, and even gave me a beer. I parked, had a couple beers, and watched as the people behind me were marooned and practically pulling their hair out as cops kept coming by in golf carts.

    In short, the Indy policeman had no reason to attack a fan for obstructing his way. The cops in Buffalo had the attitude: "This is a clusterfrig, and there's not much you can do about it."
