He threw a dead catfish onto the ice.
As a result, he was quickly escorted out of the building. This morning, we found out that he has been charged under the Pennsylvania crime codes.
Catfish guy Jacob Deveral’s charges: 1) disorderly conduct 2) possessing instruments of crime 3) disrupting meetings and processions.— Sean Gentille (@seangentille) May 30, 2017
We all have been guilty of disrupting a meeting at some point in our lives, right?
Police say Waddell bought the catfish in TN, vacuum sealed it, put it in his compression shorts and removed it in a mens room at PPG Arena.— Paul Rasmussen (@KDKAPRasmussen) May 30, 2017
@PredsMaverick Charge they may, charge they might, that Catfish still hit the ice last night!!!! Go Preds!!!— Jake Deveral Waddell (@JacobDeveral) May 30, 2017
Anyways, here’s my brief thoughts on this:
- Buying a catfish in Tennessee and taking it to Pennsylvania and strapping it to your body to go to a hockey game is disgusting
- Throwing said catfish on the ice and not expecting to be removed from the building is dumb
- I am reminded of advice my parents gave me when I would travel as a teenager. “Don’t get in trouble while you’re out of town.”
Throw a dead fish on the ice as a road fan and it’s not going to go well for you. Removal from the building was enough, but the troll gets trolled by being charged with crimes. I see no issue with this.
we need extreme catfish vetting tomorrow night @penguins— coconut&mojito mike (@MikeDarnay) May 30, 2017
I for one am curious to see if anyone tries to do it for Game 2.
