Gov. Chris Christie gets in Cubs fan's face at Miller Park

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie paused at Sunday's match-up between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs to get in a fan's face and call him a "big shot."

"I appreciate that," the fan, Brad Joseph, is heard replying in video shared by WXOW's sister station, WISN 12 NEWS reporter Ben Hutchison.

Joseph, a relative of Hutchison's, explained further: 

"When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was quite a bit passed me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked. ... I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute. (He) was yelling at me. First he told me, 'Why don't you have another beer?' which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy."

Hutchison began recording video at the end of the confrontation.

Christie, whose son works for the Milwaukee Brewers, received boos from fans about two weeks ago after catching a foul ball at a game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets.

The Cubs won Sunday's game, 4-2.
