Upset Packer fan accused of attacking daughter

TOWN OF GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin woman is accused of choking her 11-year-old daughter after becoming angry because the Green Bay Packers were losing.

The 36-year-old Grand Chute woman was charged Monday in Outagamie County with felony child abuse.

Police were called Sunday night to a hotel where the girl told police her mother grabbed her by the neck during the football game. According to the complaint, the woman was drinking alcohol and became upset because the Packers were losing. The girl said that after Green Bay lost for the first time this season, her mother choked her again with enough force that the girl couldn't breathe.

The Post-Crescent is not identifying the woman to protect the girl's identity.

The woman remained in jail Tuesday. Her attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
