'I Drank Too Much Because The Jets Suck': Man Blames Football Team For DWI Charge

WAYNE, N.J. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Authorities say a New York Jets fan charged with drunken driving after a crash told police he drank too much because the team isn't any good.

Wayne police say 57-year-old Christopher Greyshock, of West Milford, was charged after he rear-ended another vehicle about 5:15 p.m. Sunday. The crash came about an hour after the Jets lost 41-10 to the Buffalo Bills.

Authorities say Greyshock told responding officers: "I drank too much because the Jets suck."

Police say Greyshock had an open bottle of whiskey and suspected marijuana in his car. Besides the DWI count, he was also charged with assault by auto.

This Jets fan isn't the only one publicly voicing his frustration. A seven-year-old boy from Mansfield, Texas recently penned a letter to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, saying "We Suck!"
