His team’s tough loss wasn’t the only headache this fan woke up to.
Police say a drunk Vikings fan who was tailgating at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds broke into a police substation after the team’s loss to Seattle, apparently thinking it was his own home.
State Fair police spokeswoman Brooke Blakey says the 30-year-old man appeared to be intoxicated when he entered the station Sunday. The station resembles a house.
Blakey says people use the fairgrounds to tailgate at Vikings games, which are played at nearby TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota.
Blakey says a patrol officer discovered the tailgater inside the substation around 4 p.m. The tailgater was arrested, booked into the Ramsey County jail and released. Trespassing charges are pending.
The Vikings lost 10-9 when Blair Walsh missed a 27-yard field goal try in Sunday’s wild-card playoff game.

This is a good example of why people should not drink to the point of getting drunk. The police may not be able to stop this man from drinking but they can definitely see he is punished for his drunken actions.
So Justin wants to throw the book at this man for causing no harm to anyone but himself, and protect Bill Cosby as much as the law will allow (See his comment on Cosby,Accused rapist Bill Cosby worried about his reputation).
I’d bet my house you’re a left wing socialist, and you are an idiot Justin!!
As we all know, when too much booz, most people are fun to watch. Not be the one being watched. If drinking, always be the one ready to be laughed at.
