Olympic silver medalist Nancy Kerrigan’s brother Mark plead not guilty to one charge of “assault and battery on an elder with serious bodily injury” after being implicated in the death of their 70-year-old father, Daniel. TMZ says
Cops say Nancy Kerrigan’s brother Mark admitted he put his hands around his father’s neck and thought his dad was faking it when he fell to the ground. Daniel Kerrigan suffered a heart attack during the altercation and died.
[Police reports say] Mark “appeared intoxicated” and “became belligerent and combative” when cops tried handcuffing him yesterday, so an officer pepper sprayed him.
Mark’s lawyer said that Mark suffers from post traumatic stress disorder from his stint in the Army, and has been living in his parent’s basement after spending time in jail for assault and battery related charges.
And in this time of trial and tribulation, who better to offer words of comfort to Nancy than the chick who hired thugs to bash her knee in? Former ice skating champ Tonya Harding released the following statement to the The Insider
“Tonya feels very sad for Nancy and her family and extends her deepest sympathy and condolences to them. Tonya’s beloved dad, Al Harding, passed away this past April, so she understands the grief Nancy and her family are feeling at this difficult time.”
However, Tonya still doesn’t know how it feels to be a USFSA champion, since she was banned from the association for life and stripped of her titles in 1994. But if Nancy ever needs to know what it feels like to be fat and make a sex tape, well, then, Tonya’s definitely her girl.
