Here it is folks, the unofficial speculative version of what REALLY went down with Mayor Opie and a police officer. It wasn't, as has been rumored, the All Star Game at which the now legendary incident of Opie pushing a cop occurred. It was the 2005 Halloween Monday Night Steelers Game at Heinz Field.
And then there's this:
Word on the street: Opie was rowdy. Somebody called security. A cop tried to reign Opie in. Opie got belligerent and pushed the cop. Opie allegedly begged for forgiveness once they slapped the cuffs on him.
THAT'S RIGHT, THEY SLAPPED THE CUFFS ON HIM.
Then what happened? Even though Bobby O wasn't yet Mayor, he was virtually the Mayor because he'd already won the Democratic primary. Somebody, either Opie or someone on Opie's behalf, called either O'Connor or Regan and told them of Opie's impending dilemma. Cause dude, you can't push a cop and not get charged for it. Unless you're the a City Councilman with connections.
So according to this version, which some news outlet, broadcast or print (they're all dying to break it first)will break soon, Dennie Regan put the fix in to make Opie shoving the cop thing go away.
It's MacYapper's understanding that at least one of the four officers involved at Heinz Field has talked to at least one mainstream news outlet reporter.I'm waiting to see how this plays out in the local media. If McIntire's heard the word on the street right, this is gonna be HUGE.
