Some degenerate gambler smacks Devin Hester at Casino


(Chicago Tribune)–The man who was arrested at Rivers Casino in Des Plaines after police said he slapped Chicago Bears receiver/returner Devin Hester in the back of the head has apologized. Hester was in a cash transaction line at around 10:40 p.m. Friday when Daniel Rago, 52, approached him, slapped him in the back of the head and walked away, Des Plaines Police Chief Jim Prandini said. Hester notified the casino’s security team and Rago, a Mount Prospect resident, was escorted to a holding area and later arrested by Des Plaines police.Rago told Fox Chicago that he was unaware it was Hester, is a huge Bears fan and knows he was wrong to touch another person. Rago said he thought Hester was trying to cut ahead of elderly people in line. “We were all waiting in line,” Rago said in a Fox Chicago interview. “We were all happy, we won a little bit of money and all of a sudden the gentleman in front of me walked over two tellers to the left. And I said, ‘Excuse me, these two elderly people were in front of you.’ And that person replied, ‘They waved me up.’ And I’m like, ‘No, the next person in line should have went to the left.’ “No response after that so I went over to the left of him and as a father would reprimand a kid — not saying he’s a kid but a young man — and I just gave him a biff on the back of the head, is what I did. And I was wrong for doing that. Nothing justifies another person hitting or touching another person. It’s wrong on my part.” Asked Wednesday at Halas Hall about Rago’s description of the details of the incident, Hester said it was inaccurate but declined to offer any comments about it.
Rago, who is due in court Dec. 1, said he didn’t realize it was Hester until he was released from the holding area and saw Hester’s name on the police complaint. “I said, ‘Oh my gosh, that was Devin Hester,'” said Rago, who attended the Bears’ game Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings in which Hester scored two touchdowns. “Now I can’t even enjoy a game anymore because of the bad choice I made.” Rago apologized to Hester during the Fox TV interview and offered to donate to a charity in Hester’s honor. “Devin, if you’re listening and if you can see me here, I am so, so sorry,” Rago said. “I made a mistake. I’m the bad guy here, and I apologize. I’m going to ask you right now, I will donate $500 to the charity of your choice and 20 hours of community service on your behalf. I messed up.”


Get a load of this asshole.  So here is basically what happened…Devin Hester was just enjoying a quiet night out at the Casino and was just crushing every table he stepped to.  At the end of the night he went to cash out his huge pile of cash and this jealous, righteous, self-appointed police of the line smacked Devin Hester in the back of the head for going ahead of a sweet old couple that told him it was ok.  Now this guy has the audacity to try and make himself out to be the victim.  Oh boo hoo, I can’t even enjoy the Bears game now because of the guilt I feel, wah wah wah.  Seriously, shut up bro. If you were a real fan you would have realized it was Hester to begin with…you know, the greatest special teams player who ever lived.


PS:  Great self restraint by Devin Hester here.  If that guy had hit someone like say…Jay Cutler, he probably would have sued for getting spit on.
PPS: This guy is such a pussy.  I have never seen a more bitch apology in my life.
