It a fit of rage, a crazed manager attempts to go for Mayor Boughton's head but Sgt. John Kapinsky offers the smack down

Don't freak out folks...the mayor wasn't REALLY attacked, it just good clean wrestling and no one was hurt (well, maybe the mayor's glasses).

Last night, Big Time Wrestling invaded the Ice Arena and stopped by to catch all the action. Yes, I admit it...I was a wrestling fan. With fond memories of my father and uncle (who grew up watching wrestling in Tennessee) taking me to several World Wide Wrestling Federation (later called the WWF and currently called the WWE) back in the late 70's/early 80s, it was a treat to have wrestling action right in the middle of Hat City for a change.

Well, it didn't have all the fireworks and special effects that you see on television, but you didn't hear one fan complain about last night's wrestling event at the Ice Arena...except when the mayor screwed 2 Cold Scorpio out of his title (SHAME, SHAME).

From the wrestlers, the mayor, and the fans you can tell everyone was having a great time during the match. My favorite character during the match was the evil manager for 2 Cold's opponent made such legends as Captain Lou Albano and "Classy" Fred Blassie proud as he really played up tot he crowd heckling the mayor and even getting into it with Sgt. Kapinsky a couple of times outside the ring.

For most of the match, the mayor called it right down the middle UNTIL he got sandwiched between a frogsmash 2 Cold landed on his opponent. While he stumbled to the ground, the evil manager of 2 Cold's opponent jumped in the ring, grabbed the mic and screwed "I quit." Thinking that 2 Cold made the announcement, Boughton gets off the floor and proclaimed that 2 Cold lost the match (even to the objections to Sgt. Kapinsky who tried the set the record straight). The match ends with total bedlam in the ring and that evil manager being chased out of the arena with the mayor and Sgt. Kapinsky in hot pursuit.

All in all, it was a really fun night for the fans and it was a great way to spend a hot summer night. The final match highlighted some fairly major talent with such wrestlers as Team 3D, Justin Credible, and Lufisto and you could tell the the crowd all in all really appreciated the show.

Here's a slideshow of last night's action.

UPDATE: Look, I'm serious, THE MAYOR WAS NOT ATTACKED NOR WAS HE HURT!!! I know the top photo paints a slightly different picture but you have to understand what that I took that picture with a flash which captures a snapshot of time at 1/60 of a second. If you look at the video (which I was not allowed to shoot) it will paint a drastically different picture.

Hell, with all the hype over the photo, I think the mayor should consider making a gimmick out of the whole thing whenever the wrestling crew comes into town (granted they have more time to work everything out).

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
