Devin Hester Got Slapped in Local Casino

I saw this headline and had to re-read it to make sure I didn’t miss something.  Devin Hester is in a local casino and out of the blue, a random 50-something guy comes up and slaps him in the back of the head.  Whaaaat?  Who does that?

Daniel Rago, 52, of Mount Prospect, Ill., was charged after slapping the back of Hester’s head while the receiver was in a cash transaction line Friday night.

“Rago comes up from behind and slaps Mr. Hester with an open hand and walks away,” Prandini said Tuesday. “Mr. Hester turned around and notified casino security. The offender was escorted to a security office and we were contacted. We were able to review the incident on video, and that verified the facts as stated by Mr. Hester.

“No prior incident between the two took place.”

Prandini did not believe that Rago knew who he was slapping. He said Rago made some type of statement about “slapping the hat off his head or something.”

So putting aside that they got the guy who slapped Devin, let’s think who would want to slap him.  Maybe Vikings punter Chris Kluwe.  He’s kind of a goofball that might want to smack Devin for all the times he’s made him look the fool.

Who else might want to take a swipe at Devin?  Let’s hear your ideas, silly as they may be.

    I know someone who saw him at a casino and said he was a disgusting prick (Hester that is). Granted, this is also a girl who asked the question on a public facebook forum “My daddy is really racist, but should I date a black guy? He has a Bentley that is really cool so that’s why I think I’m going to do it.” And yes, she’s probably 25 years old.So take that for what it’s worth.

    I’m just glad Hester handled it right. I wonder what Cedric Benson would have done? We know Jim Schwartz doesn’t stand for that.

    Totally agree. This could have ended poorly if Dev hadn’t kept his cool. I’ve met him a couple times and he’s so chill I can’t imagine that he’d ever pop off. @kengrad

    I think your source is probably off base. I’ve seen Devin out (and in a casino as a matter of fact) and he is very low key. @TomSchwarz
