Public reactions on this incident


Just because this person took a selfie at a Super Bowl with a celebrity, somehow that makes him worthy of a media article detailing his arrest? Standards have sure lowered in the ‘celebrity’ world.


Meanwhile, there was a huge train derailment in Ohio yesterday that spewed chemicals into the air and affected people and animals for miles around. But I guess we’ll just go for stories like these instead.


a security officer isn’t a law enforcement officer. the security officer should have never placed hands on the person. a security officer may detain for questioning, but not place under arrest, a subject. obstruction of a security officer is all the person is guilty of and possibly disorderly conduct with trespassing if the proprietors asked him to leave and he refused.
