Roar Lions! Just Don't Stand Up!
A local man was arrested Saturday at the game between UNA and W. Georgia for STANDING. He wasn’t drunk. He wasn’t using profanity. He was standing and cheering for his team. Wow! Getting arrested for having team spirit. That’s a new one. TUNA cops asked him to sit down. After refusing, stating this was a sporting event and he had every right to stand and cheer, he was promptly cuffed in front of his adult children and a group of high-school kids that had come with him and lead out of the stadium. He was taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center and had to bail out. Think any local attorneys want a piece of this one? Keep a look out on the horizon for the ACLU; I think I hears ‘em comin’.
