Bears fan tackles Saints fan after he shoved George McCaskey

New, comments

It seems last night's action wasn't only taking place between the lines at Soldier Field...

Last night Chicago Bears Chairman George McCaskey was attending the Monday Night game between his team and the New Orleans Saints. With thousands of no-shows some fans felt entitled to get up and find better seats. One such fan, 58 year old Richard Kohnke of New Orleans, felt he could steal the seat of Chairman McCaskey.

Who in their right mind would try to steal the owner's seat?

The best part of the story is a Bears fan came to McCaskey's aid and tackled the cowardly Kohnke. Once security arrived Kohnke was escorted away and according to police he was charged with simple battery, which is a misdemeanor.

Hopefully this Good Bears Samaritan will at the very least, get a #75 Kyle Long jersey out of this, and best case scenario, he'll earn a try out with the Bears.
