At least he didn't staple it to the kid's head. AP (01.16.08):
"Upset that his 7-year-old son wouldn't wear a Green Bay Packers jersey during the team's playoff victory Saturday, a man restrained the boy for an hour with tape and taped the jersey onto him. Mathew Kowald was cited for disorderly conduct in connection with the incident with his son at their home in Pardeeville, Lt. Wayne Smith of the Columbia County Sheriff's Department said." You're a Packers Fan, Son ... Got It?Mom's not pleased. "Kowald's wife filed a restraining order Wednesday, so Kowald will not be able to have contact with his family, Smith said. Smith said other domestic issues have surfaced, though he wouldn't elaborate." Huh. Imagine that. The good Sheriff also said "the incident sounded strange when reported at first, but the mother took pictures with her cell phone and that type of evidence is difficult to dispute." Dad said it was all a joke.
