Here’s the Turd in the Purple Sombrero
We told you about the idiot Minnesota Vikings fan who was arrested for knocking a guy unconscious after the Green Bay Packers win on Sunday. You know, he was wearing a purple sombrero and a Vikings poncho.
Well, here he is — Mark Swanson of Lakeland, Minn.
As the story goes, Swanson and a Green Bay man — Shawn Hrubesky — were arguing while leaving Lambeau Field. This escalated into fisticuffs and when Hrubesky’s father Paul jumped in to try to break up the fight, he got knocked the fuck out.
Court documents say after Paul Hrubesky was hit, Swanson took off, wearing what complaint says was a purple sombrero. He was arrested behind K-Mart a short time later.
Several others were also involved — the majority of them were reportedly trying to stop the fight.
Swanson was charged with battery and disorderly conduct, while Hrubesky was charged with disorderly conduct.
Swanson is due back in court on Dec. 21.
