Cheer loudly for the Florida Gators at your own risk

It seems that not everyone had a good time watching the Florida Gators' creaming of the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game.

From Local 6:

"A 51-year-old woman yelling "Go Gators" during Florida's victory over Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game had a gun pointed at her by a convicted felon who entered her apartment after he misunderstood the cheering for racial slurs, Orange County sheriff's deputies said.

Bruce Cooper, 30, was arrested on charges of armed burglary with a firearm, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and aggravated assault with a firearm.
Oddly, Cooper could understand everything announcer Verne Lundquist was saying.
