‘ChiefsAholic’ Lawyer Goes Viral For Statement Filled With Strange Football Metaphors After Guilty Plea

Matthew Merryman, the lawyer that represents Xavier Babudar, the infamous Chiefs fan known as “ChiefsAholic” went viral on Wednesday after his client plead guilty in federal courts to counts of bank robbery, money laundering and transporting stolen property across state lines.

Outside the courtroom, Merryman began his press conference with a statement that filled with strange football references as he was speaking on behalf of his client.

“From the beginning of this case, folks, the government has been blitzing. And Xavier’s pocket was collapsing,” Merryman said. “But today, Xavier has stepped into the pressure. He took responsibility for his actions.

“If I know anything about Xavier, and if the Chiefs Kingdom knows anything about ChiefsAholic, we know that he doesn’t give up. We know that if he stumbled, and he fell, he didn’t let his knee touch the ground.”


Here’s the clip:

Babudar, known for wearing a wolf costume to Chiefs games, was previously indicted on 19 criminal counts in Kansas City in August.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison while also being forced to pay at least $532,675 in restitution and surrender property acquired in the money laundering activity.
