When A Catfish Is An 'Instrument Of Crime'
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Jacob Waddell had his moment at the Stanley Cup finals. He attended the first game between Nashville and Pittsburgh and threw a catfish on the ice. He said afterward he was, quote, "dumb redneck with a bad idea." He's accused of disorderly conduct and possessing instruments of crime.
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
A catfish as instrument of crime?
INSKEEP: Yeah. Hockey fans do have traditions of throwing objects on the ice. You know, Rachel, it's sort of like when you throw a trout before each day's show.
MARTIN: Watch out.
