Wisconsin ( – Credit to Gaslamp Post reader, Jonas, for this story.  A drunken woman grabbed her 11-year-old daughter by the neck and choked her on Sunday after becoming angered by the Green Bay Packers game, police said.

The 36-year-old Grand Chute woman was charged Monday in OutagamieCounty Circuit Court with felony child abuse and misdemeanor counts of bail jumping and disorderly conduct.

Police were called about 8:15 p.m. Sunday to a Grand Chute hotel where the girl told police her mother grabbed her by the neck during the game.

The woman was drinking alcoholand became upset because the Packers were losing to the Kansas City Chiefs. The girl said that after the Packers lost, her mother choked her again with enough force that she couldn’t breathe,the criminal complaint said.

The Post-Crescent is not naming the woman to protect the identity of the girl.

The woman’s husband told police she also threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp and tried to punch him in the face because she was upset about the game, the Packers’ first loss in 14 games this season.

The child abuse charge carries a maximum sentence of 12½ years of imprisonment and $25,000 in fines. The woman could face up to nine months in jail if convicted of bail jumping and 90 days on the disorderly conduct count. She is being held in jail on a $2,500 cash bond.   

Holy abuse case, America!  All this over a football game?  I remember back in the day, the joke was that the majority of domestic abuse charges occurred on Superbowl Sunday (I was a dumb kid and didn’t know any better).  At least the majority of these cases happen on one specific occasion, this broad snapped a gasket over one game. 

Choke your kid over a football game, SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?  Sports can be passionate, but there’s no excuse for this.  Way to set an example for the next generation, mom.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about puttin’ one up side the back of their head, every now-and-again, when they need it.  Sometimes a kid needs to be put back in line, hell, half the reason I had kids was so that I’d have someone to knock around.  But c’mon lady! 

Trash a hotel?  Who does this bitch think she is, Vince Neil?  They wouldn’t give a name because of the kid, so there goes my chance at a mugshot.  I was hoping to get a look at mommy dearest.  Who knows?  It could have provided alittle comic relief.  Oh please, like I’m the only one who laughs at mug shots.

Wisconsin, I love you guys!  You’re my favorite bunch of drunks!
