Watch Out for Flying Drinks

He still shouldn't have allegedly shoved anybody, but maybe LB Nick Barnett was just protecting himself from a flying drink. It's more likely he allegedly shoved someone in retaliation, not in self defense, but either way it gives Barnett a potential legal defense and makes it harder to obtain a conviction. However, it might be harder for the D.A. to drop a weak case when an NFL player is involved.
