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?"

Most males with substance abuse and/or anger managment problems have adoring, over-protective, indulgent mommies who defend them ferociously. This guy is right in that category. A woman came after him, huh? He's a real man. That he wasn't charged at least with harrassment is disgusting-but not surprising.
Ruben Gonzales October 22, 2013 at 01:29 PM
The video shows 3 people charging at him. 2 females and one male. It's only natural to try and defend yourself.

I am so tired of parents defending or denying their children's bad actions ! Parents like that should be punished too.

I just read more. His daddy is a retired suffolk cop. THAT is explains why the ***hole got away with it.

Fire.....you're a jerk. You mean to tell me that if a chick is in your face, pushing, throwing punches and saying God knows what, you would just stand there. She was the aggressor and needs to be dealt with accordingly. I was at the games....the Pats fans pranced in like it was their house. So glad the Pats lost....just wish she had been knocked out.

No one jumped in when she was attacking him BUT as soon as his hand made contact, it goes viral, he's the bad guy, all because she's a supposed "woman" CUT THAT EXCUSE OUT! women are just as aggressive and should be punished. I hope they sue her. The video is enough proof to prove his innocence. This is just like the bus driver incident.

What's going on with men seriously a men hitting a women is the equivalent of a women punching a kid. He could of seriously hurt her. I'm not saying she's right but he should of restrain her or call the cops (commen sense) 2 wrongs don't make a right.

of course- he is buddies with the owner of the jets which stands to reason-

This is why I never, EVER attend any functions where alcohol is being served...particularly a sports event where liquored up people are fanatical about their teams. Instant a-hole...just add alcohol.

These comments are the essence of mob mentality. I have never seen so many,"I couldn't see but..., She Probably...I guess...I don't know if she..." This is why eye-witness testimony has to be discounted. Everybody is viewing the same film clip, and yet they see different things and claim things happened that they admit they didn't see. In the end, they had their minds made up before they watched, and no amount of evidence will every change a closed mind.

Stephen; Obama is friends with many people including Bill Clinton but that isn't reason enough to lock up Clinton for depositing semen on her dress.
Savanna October 22, 2013 at 03:27 PM
America; Ye let's call the cops and watch them show up in 1/2 hr. Or better yet when a Dude pulls a gun on y rather than pulling your own on the Perp call a Cop; see how that works for you.

Savanna October 22, 2013 at 03:59 PM

If she startted it, she was either drunk, stupid or maybe both. If I was that guy, I'd have belted her too.

I'm a grown woman and even I agree that if she went after him and wouldn't stop, then followed him out and punched that he had every right to defend himself in an equal way as the agressor...gender and size advantage don't matter.
Louis Calabro October 22, 2013 at 04:37 PM
Someone screwed her head up, if she actually thinks she can punch men and get away with it. I didn't teach my daughters that crazy stuff. Act right--all is OK.
Mustache Chuck Self October 22, 2013 at 04:52 PM
The size of Kurt and the size of that woman note that in your mind That was the size of Henry who he killed behind the Pizza place, He got away with it with Politics and his Cop father, That Lady was pissed for a reason if you knew Kurt you could understand he was a piece of crap all through School. Mr big Bully, Hope you enjoyed all my lunches you took from me even though you had your own Kurt
Louis Calabro October 22, 2013 at 05:09 PM
Kurt can be the biggest a$$hole in the world---but no one has the right to put their hands on him. If they do, IMHO they aught to realize that they may get hit back. That is the way it should be--or is in my world. Best wishes, Louie

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.
Roxy October 22, 2013 at 07:54 PM
Mom, You are full of bull feces.

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