Chris Christie Talks Confronting Heckler at Baseball Game: 'I Didn't Dump the Nachos on Him'

Chris Christie is sharing his side of the story after video footage was released featuring the governor of New Jersey confronting a man who was heckling him at a baseball game.

The confrontation took place over the weekend at the Brewers-Cubs game at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

“He was already quite a bit past me, and 30 feet away,” Brad Joseph told WISN 12 News. “I yelled his name and told him that he sucked… I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said.”

Chris then turned around, got in Brad‘s face, and reportedly said, “You’re a big shot.”

“[For] those of you who know me, I think I was fairly restrained,” Chris explained during a news conference on Wednesday (August 2) in Trenton, according to NJ.com. “I didn’t dump the nachos on him or anything, which was an option.”

“When I’m at a baseball game with my son on a Sunday afternoon, I do have a right to be able to sit there and enjoy the game,” Chris added. “The fact is, I’ve made this my policy over eight years: I will take a certain amount of abuse. If you’re a public official, you have to. But usually it’s one. You get one shot to call me a name or curse me out. And I gave him that shot.”

When asked whether he’d be “swearing off” big league games in the future, Chris replied, “No, I’ll go more.”
