Does This Look Like The Face Of A Dude Who Beat His Nephew With A Frying Pan and Umbrella Because The Cowboys Lost To The Giants?
One South Carolina man didn’t want to watch NBC after the Dallas Cowboys’ playoff hopes went up in smoke – so much so that he was ready to fight his nephew with a frying pan and an umbrella. Derek Gene Woodrow, 44, was arrested Sunday night for an alleged intoxicated altercation with his nephew that stemmed from his nephew’s refusal to change the channel after the Cowboys loss, a fight that featured an odd array of weapons – from pocket knives to frying pans and umbrellas. Larry Christopher McAllister, 24, told police that he and Woodrow, his uncle, were watching a football game and had been drinking together Sunday night. When the Giants beat the Cowboys, 31-14, Woodrow, a Cowboys fan, insisted that McAllister change the channel, screaming and getting in his nephew’s face. When McAllister asked his uncle to get out of his face, Woodrow grabbed McAllister’s head and threw him to the floor before punching his nephew in his nose and above his eye, according to police. As McAllister escaped his uncle’s grasp and fled the townhome to a parking lot, Woodrow would chase his nephew and try to assault him with a frying pan and an umbrella, according to the police report. “Larry stated that he told [Woodrow] to stop chasing him and Derek kept trying to assault him with the frying pan and the umbrella,” police stated in the police report.
