Taunting Panther's Fans Force Marine Amputee Out Of Moosehead Bar and Grill
On Sunday a U.S. Marine who lost both legs in Afghanistan was forced to leave Charlotte's Moosehead Bar and Grill along with his wife, parents and friends after another patron at the restaurant became verbally combative and the restaurant staff asked the Marine to leave.
According to the Charlotte Observer: "The incident happened after Garrett Carnes, his wife Courtney, their parents, and friends Brett and Nicole Coburn stopped at the restaurant for dinner after attending the Carolina Panthers’ game against Dallas. Several members of the party, including Garrett Carnes, were wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys.
Coburn said that when the group reached the front door, the fan, who other patrons called Tank, was waiting for them."
“He was standing at the door, and he started harassing us because of the Cowboys jerseys,” Coburn said.
He said Tank told Garrett Carnes, “Don’t use your wheelchair as a crutch.”
According to multiple accounts of the incident, Carnes told the patron – and others who were ridiculing the group for being Cowboys’ fans – that he was a veteran and had lost his legs in Afghanistan.
Members of the Carnes-Coburn party tried to “defend ourselves verbally,” Brett Coburn said.
He said Tank walked toward Carnes in a threatening way, and some other patrons stepped in to break it up.
Neilsen said his employees are trained to separate possible combatants, in an effort to defuse such situations. On Sunday, staff members asked Garrett Carnes and his party to leave, while they took Tank to another area of the restaurant."
The panthers suck almost as bad as their fans.
Mistress of the Snark
Judging by all the tattoos, Tank is most likely infected with the strain of hepatitis that will eventually give him liver cancer.
