LI Man & MA Woman Charged in MetLife Stadium Punch-Up

East Rutherford, NJ - (WALK) The Holbrook man who was captured on video striking a Boston woman at MetLife Stadium Sunday is one of four people, including his victim, charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

Kurt Paschke II, 38, of Holbrook, has a record of violent behavior, according to prosecutors, including serving three years in prison for stabbing to death a Bay Shore Teen in 1992.

Paschke was recorded Sunday punching Jaclyn Nugent, 26, in the face during an altercation between fans of the New York Jets and New England Patriots. Paschke, Nugent, and two of her friends from Massachusetts, Amanda MacDowell, 25, and David Sacco, 28, were each charged with assault and disorderly conduct, according to New Jersey State Police Tuesday.

A family member says Paschke was defending himself and his 62-year-old mother from offensive behavior by Nugent and her friends, according to published accounts. Paschke is reportedly employed as a bartender.

All four suspects are banned from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, until the case is resolved, according to the Jets management.

In addition to the fatal stabbing in Sayville in 1992, Paschke was charged with criminal mischief and damaging property in 2007. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct.  In 2011 he was accused of selling alcohol to a minor. He pleaded guilty and paid a $335 fine.
