Holbrook Man Punches Woman at Jets Game

Kurt Paschke served three years for fatally stabbing a man in Sayville in the 1990s.

HOLBROOK, NY – A Holbrook man has been caught on video punching a woman in the face following Sunday's Jets game at MetLife Stadium. 

Kurt Paschke, who served three years in prison in the 1990s for a fatal stabbing behind a Sayville pizzeria, is seen on the video hitting the woman during a fight in the concourse after the Jets overtime victory. 

Paschke and the woman he struck, Jaclyn Nugent, 26, of Boston, were both charged with assault and disorderly conduct by New Jersey State Police Tuesday. Two of Nugent's friends also face the same charges. 

Police say Nugent and her friend Amanda MacDowell, 25, of Marlborough, Mass., punched and kicked Paschke in the body and head before the Paschke struck Nugent in the face. 

“The women were the aggressors,’’ a law-enforcement source told the New York Post. 

Paschke's family members have rallied to his defense. 

"He’s the victim, really,” Colleen Paschke told the New York Daily News of her son, a Sachem High School graduate. “He was just concerned for his mother and himself.”

Kurt Paschke father, Kurt Paschke Sr., a retired Suffolk County cop, told Newsday that Nugent had been verbally abusive to his son and his friends during the game. 

Kurt Paschke Sr. said Nugent "jumped" a couple who were at the game with his son as they were making their way out of the stadium, according to Newsday. That's when he says his son stepped in to protect his friends and his mother, who was nearby. 

"This girl was charging him and punching him. She's no lady," Kurt Paschke Sr. told Newsday. "She was the aggressor. If she's gonna start a fight, what is my son gonna do?"

Before the melee and actual punch, there had to be words traded and some good amount of drinking, don't you think? It could have been avoided by acting like a human and not consuming so much beer, and not "getting into it"with other fans. Both sides are at fault and are disgusting.

Archaic and sexist. Strike and be stricken. Besides, a woman would not act like that.
