You Might be a Redneck If….

February 21, 2008

The McAlester News-Capital is reporting no charges will be filed after Lloyd Fields, Oklahoma State Labor Commissioner, spent 10 hours in a detox center over the weekend, after trying to steal Ft. Worth bull rider Colby Yates’ guitar, and being wrestled to the ground by two members of the Professional Bull Riders’ Association.

Fields apologized, and said the whole thing was a botched practical joke.

The Oklahoman is reporting that Yates was not amused…

“It might not have been a practical joke to me. Maybe it was? I don’t
know.”

…but graciously declined to file a complaint:

“They did ask me that [if he wanted to press charges]. I told them it wasn’t a big deal to me.”
