Auburn Fan Punched in the Eye For Chanting “War Eagle” at Whataburger
Sometimes it is just best to get your burger and keep it moving.
But of course Fan is short for Fanatic. In this case being that loyal to Auburn got him looking like Antonio Margarito after the Pacquiao fight.
According to a police report filed by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, a man standing in line at the local Whataburger franchise had been “repeatedly chanting ‘War Eagle’” when a “brief argument” broke out between the man and two strangers in the restaurant. The argument ended with both of the strangers reportedly punching the presumed Auburn fan “near his left eye with a closed fist.”
Per the report, the alleged victim returned the punch, but the assailants fled on foot. One of the two stopped in the parking lot long enough, however, to also punch (in the face) a man sitting on top of a car hood. The second victim was the brother of a woman who had been with the first victim inside the Whataburger.
No arrests were reported as the assailants fled the scene. They did, however, pay for their transgressions by having to leave behind their Whataburger meals.
