Most people are familiar with the horrible case of Brian Stowe, the San Francisco Giants fan who was beaten into a coma outside Dodger Stadium last earlier this year. Well, this awful attack that occurred at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, just now being reported, is eerily similar. In this instance, it was a New York Jets fan allegedly attacked by a marauding bunch of Kansas City Chiefs fans. Not only did the yahoos viciously beat poor James Mohr, they added to the lunacy by screaming out that New Yorkers deserved what happened on 9/11.
Classy stuff, Chiefs fans.
A diehard Jet fan was savagely beaten on his own turf by a drunken gang of Kansas City Chiefs fans after their team was trounced on Sunday — with one of the assailants barking “F–k New York” and “You all deserved what happened on 9/11!” the victim’s distraught family told The Post.
James Mohr, 23, a physical-education teacher at the Bronx Guild vocational high school, was wearing his Jets gear after the team’s 37-10 victory as he walked through Parking Lot J at MetLife Stadium when a woman standing with a pack of thugs screamed the vile taunts.
Mohr took offense and told the rowdies their 9/11 insult was “disrespectful,” said his sister, Anna Mohr, 28.
“Our other brother is a fireman, and my father is retired FDNY, so you can understand why a 9/11 comment would especially irk him,” Anna said. “He was shocked anyone would actually say something like that.”
Mohr, who lives in Auburndale, Queens, was walking alone from where a group of neighborhood pals had gathered in another part of the lot where some buddies from Manhattan College were parked when he was jumped by up to seven of the cowardly goons. At least one was wearing a Chiefs football jersey, a police source confirmed
The lifelong Jet fan suffered a fractured jaw, cheekbone and eye socket in the beatdown, and also has bleeding on the brain.
Mohr underwent hours of surgery to repair his shattered face yesterday at Hackensack University Medical Center, where his family was keeping vigil.
“He’s hanging in there and he’s scheduled for surgery. We won’t know too much until that’s done,” Anna Mohr said before surgery.State troopers busted one of the alleged attackers, a New Jersey man, on a simple assault charge, but a spokesman said yesterday the probe is continuing.
