Arrested Jets Fan Speaks Up

By now all of you will be aware of the Jets fan that was arrested in San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium, seemingly only for cheering his team on to victory. Well the New York Post tracked him down and he spoke up for the first time about his arrest and the circumstances leading to it:

In what has become a YouTube sensation, several San Diego officers are seen roughly handcuffing New York native Bill Carroll for allegedly being drunk and resisting police.

Carroll -- who had been shouting "J-E-T-S, Jets! Jets! Jets!" near the off-duty officer -- told The Post yesterday, "I wasn't doing anything wrong. I was just watching the game.

"What's wrong with me saying, 'Jets, Jets, Jets?' "

He said he had just three beers over four hours and cops refused to let him take a Breathalyzer test to prove he was sober.

The officers "were just totally out of line, and they wouldn't listen to reason," said Steve Sevigny, a Charger fan who witnessed the arrest.

Unfortunately if the police officers in question were hoping this was going to just blow over they were mistaken, the you-tube video has over 180,000 views so far.
