Study: Beer, losing turn Packer fans into hooligans

Here's an interesting factoid: When the Green Bay Packers lose at Lambeau, police typically make 50 percent more arrests than they do during a win. The Green Bay Press Gazette crunched the numbers for the past 10 years. They found that Packer fans are generally well-behaved, but that losing-induced alcohol consumption plays a big role. (First the necrophilia, now this. What's up, Wisconsin?)

(Hat tip to Star reporter Mike Mansur!)
