The tale of the football f***ery continues…
A man zapped by a stun gun-toting Cowboys fan says his assailant instigated the upper deck fracas by showing more respect for Dallas’ colors than the red, white and blue.
Leroy McKelvey insulted former President George Bush, jabbered during a moment of silence for 9/11 victims and sat during the national anthem at MetLife Stadium last Sunday, Ian Cummings told the Daily News.
“It was the most disrespectful thing I had ever seen,” said Cummings, 46, of Farmingdale, L.I.
Cummings said the F-bombs started flying in Section 324 when McKelvey, in a Cowboys jersey, arrived and immediately bad-mouthed the former President.
Although tense, things didn’t really get out of pocket until the moment of silence and the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ was sung.
“As that happens, the guy starts going, ‘C’mon, let’s get the game started,’” Cummings said. “I was kinda shocked. I looked around to make sure everybody heard what I heard.”
The final straw: McKelvey was sitting and chatting on a cell phone during “The Star Spangled Banner,” according to Cummings.
“The Marine leans over and says, ‘You sit during the national anthem, you f—ing this and that. Don’t come back this way,’” Cummings said.
McKelvey’s son insisted his father meant no disrespect to anyone when he stayed in his seat.
“My father’s 59, he’s got high blood pressure,” said Leonard McKelvey, better known as DJ Charlamagne Tha God. “He did stand at first, but he got dizzy.”
Shortly before halftime is when all hell broke loose.
When McKelvey tried to leave the seats just before halftime, Cummings acknowledged busting his chops.
“I’m like, ‘You couldn’t get up before, and now you want me to get up?’” he said. The next thing Cummings knew, he heard the sound of electricity and saw the flash of blue light from the stun gun.
“It hurt,” he said. “He got me in the back of the neck. I felt my body shake, and did a header right over the seats in front of me.”
Says ‘The Breakfast Club’ radio host about his father’s current condition:
“He’s good,” said Leonard McKelvey. “The main thing that bothers him is people painting him like he’s part of Al Qaeda, sneaking a stun gun in the stadium. It’s crazy.”
Charlamagne is definitely a friend of the site, but it sounds like his pops was a little out of pocket. It’s one thing to isht on George Bush, but to to say “C’mon let’s get the game started” during the moment of silence is downright disrespectful.
We do, however, find it mildly humorous that this man is carrying a stun gun. Not a knife, razor blade, or small pistol, but a stun gun, the type you’d give to your mom or girlfriend…SMH LOL!
Keep that man out of trouble Leonard!
