Lambeau disturbance suspect writes FOX 11: 'Show that I’m innocent in all this'
GREEN BAY (WLUK) – The man who allegedly smashed cars and drove into the Lambeau Field loading dock last month tells FOX 11 he was upset about his job situation, and did not intend to hurt anyone.
Chay Vang, 40, faces seven charges -- two felony counts of recklessly endangering safety, five misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property -- for the Dec. 22 incident. He returns to court Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
In a 10-page, handwritten letter to WLUK-TV, Vang recounts a similar version to what police have said: that Vang got into an altercation with other co-workers from Delaware North, which provides food services to the stadium. Vang was arrested moments after the police arrived on scene.
Vang says he was unhappy that he was fired while the other man was not. He went to Lambeau because “I never got a chance to tell my side of the story” to supervisors. He saw his former co-workers in the parking lot and they “came running at me like they were going to gang up on me so I got angry & started to ram his blue Nissan. I was not there to hurt anybody, just scaring them.”
“Show that I’m innocent in all this. Tell my friends & family & all of the people I know I love them & miss them,” he writes.
According to a criminal complaint, one of the former co-workers told police he felt scared for his life and thought that Vang was going to start shooting at people, but he never saw him with a weapon.
