APPLETON, Wis. – A Wisconsin woman was arrested this week after allegedly choking her daughter in a drunken rage because the Green Bay Packers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, authorities said.
According to a report in the Green Bay Press Gazette, the 36-year-old Grand Chute woman, whose name has not been released to protect the identity of her daughter, was charged on Monday with felony child abuse and misdemeanor counts of bail jumping and disorderly conduct.
Police say that they were called to a Grand Chute hotel room on Sunday evening, where they were told by the woman’s daughter that her mother – who had been drinking and was upset at the Packers’ poor play – grabbed her by the neck and choked her with enough force that she couldn’t breathe.
The mother then allegedly asked her daughter, “Do you want to die?” the Press Gazette reports.
The woman’s husband told police that she also threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp and attempted to punch him in the face because she was so upset about the game.
The Packers lost to the Chiefs 19-14, their first loss in nearly a year.
If convicted, the woman could face over 13 years in jail and $25,000 in fines. She is being held in a Outagamie County, Wisconsin, jail on $2,500 cash-only bond.
