Remember that New York Jets fan who was caught punching a woman on Sunday? It may surprise you to find out that he’s not a great guy. How not great of a guy? Well, he killed a dude back in 1992.
Kurt Paschke, 38, was convicted of criminally negligent homicide and sentenced to nearly four years in prison for killing Henri Ferrer, 17, of Bay Shore during a fight outside a Sayville pizzeria in 1992.
Paschke, who was 17 at the time, was originally charged with murder but ultimately convicted of the lesser charge.
In a bizarre twist, he became best pals with Marty Tankleff in prison, according to a book on Tankleff. Tankleff was convicted in the brutal 1988 killing of his wealthy parents and then freed after his sentence was overturned in 2008.
“I am deeply sorry,” Paschke said at the time of his own sentencing in 1995. “I can honestly say I never sought the confrontation, but when it came, I did what I had to do.”
Trouble just seems to find this guy, huh?
Here’s the punch again, if you somehow haven’t been watching it on repeat for 36 hours.
