Default Mendenhall getting stuffed at the goal line leads to me getting choked by a bouncer

You guys have to listen to what happened to me last night. I was at a bar watching the game with my girlfriend, drinking a little bit but by no means being belligerent or obtrusively loud. When Mendenhall got stuffed on that fourth and goal I instinctively reacted by kicking the bar stool next to me, and it fell over. I went to pick it up immediately, and I hear somebody say "calm down ******." Thinking it was somebody at the bar, I looked in the direction I heard it from and said something to the effect of "who said that." Turns out it was a rather large bouncer. I think I said something about "his bouncer muscles" but literally within 5 seconds I was on the ground in a wrestling style choke hold. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this sound a little excessive? My girlfriend was also thrown to the ground when she tried to step in. I was obviously kicked out of the bar after that. We called the police, if nothing else to create a problem for the bar and let them know we weren't going to take this lying down.

The kicker is that if Wallace gets into the end zone, or Mendy doesn't get stuffed three straight times, none of this happens. I've always hated our weak goal line running game, but this is the worst thing it's ever done to me!!1 at least we got the win

Having been on the other side of that scenario too many times I'm siding with the bouncer. You were drinking and more than likely acting the fool and you got what you deserved. And calling the cops is beyond stupid. More often than not they're going to listen to the people that aren't drinking and you're doing nothing but drawing attention to yourself, potentially opening yourselves up to DWI's etc. You want to kick over furniture because of a football game stay at home, the general public doesn't need or want to deal with your childish behavior.

Why is that a douche move? I wasn't acting like a fool at all during the game and we were both very polite to everyone working there. I was in my view assaulted without any cause for a snap to brutality in under five seconds, and they put their hands on my girlfriend. We called the cops simply to cause a problem for these assholes, and both officers agreed that what they did was wrong. There was no danger of a DWI because we weren't driving.

for those of you on the side of the bouncer......if someone's in a bar,getting loud, kicks over a stool, then makes a comment of any kind, you can EASILY walk them out, etc, there's many options.
But to do a "takedown" or "choke out" is completely unnecessary and is an uncontrollable act of testosterone. He didn't sound like he was "out of control" or other people were in immediate danger.
Takedowns and chokeholds when someones not out of control or other people are not being assaulted is not only an over reaction but abuse of the bouncer position as well.
I don't like belligerent people in bars either, but in this instance, there seems to have been zero reason for this reaction. I'm even questioning the getting kicked out part. Should have been a "hey, don't kick over the stools" type of thing and that should have been it, done and over.

Your act of "instinctively kicking a bar stool" is immature childish behavior period. If you want to be in public act like an adult if you want to act like a child then stay at home. Quit being a kitten by playing the victim and accept responsibility for your actions.

YOu're forgetting one major detail, there are two sides to every story. 99 times out of 100 the people having drinks are leaving out significant details as well. For all you know his "I said something abou this bouncers muscles" was **** you you steriod injecting muscle .....

I'll tell you guys right now that my behavior was completely normal for the entire game. Like someone said above me, they could have handled it without force easily, there was barely even other people in the bar.

I understand that.....i'm just going on the facts that he described here. Plus no one, including the bouncer, was in any danger. By the facts he stated....its WAY overreacton and bullying.
There could be more. Just going by whats on here.
