Man Arrested At Illinois Casino After Allegedly Smacking Devin Hester

According to police, a man was placed under arrest last Friday after he allegedly slapped Chicago Bears WR/KR/PR Devin Hester upside the head for no apparent reason.

Via the Chicago Tribune:

Hester was in a cash transaction line at around 10:40 p.m. Friday when Daniel Rago, 52, approached the football player, slapped him in the back of the head and walked away, Des Plaines Police Chief Jim Prandini said.

Hester notified the casino’s security team and Rago — of the 200 block of Wille Street in Mount Prospect — was escorted to a holding area and later arrested by Des Plaines police.

Huh. That’s an odd story. Perhaps this Rago fellow is not a big fan of electrifying kick and punt returns. Or possibly, he was a Vikings fan simply foreseeing what Hester was going to do against his team on Sunday night and decided to take  action, however ill-advised it might have been.

Then again, if the guy was a Vikings fan, he would probably have been far too busy slapping himself to have any time to seek out Hester.
