It appears we've got some breaking knuckle-head news to share with you.

According to the Collegiate Times, Virginia Tech's student newspaper, junior kicker Cody Journell cleared out a Buffalo Wild Wings last Thursday after, get this, spraying pepper spray throughout the restaurant.

Here's how the Collegiate Times describes what went down:

The incident happened around 9 p.m. Thursday as Journell and some of his friends were watching the Virginia Tech-Virginia basketball game. ...

According to Journell, he was describing to his friend how her small can of pepper-spray worked, holding the key-chain sized can in his hand. As he passed it back to her, it was triggered and released. ...

The entire bar and most of the restaurant ran outside onto the patio. People were crying, coughing and throwing up from the effects of the gas.

The Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Challenge certainly can have that same effect, but we digress.

Journell, who reported the incident to the police himself, maintains that what happened was an accident.

"Stuff likes this happens," Journell said. "Accidents happen."

At least one person disagrees.

"I think he meant to do it," one unidentified restaurant server said, based on observation, "but I don't think he knew it was going to have the effect that it had." The server added: "He was extremely apologetic."

Neither the restaurant nor any of its customers affected that night have pressed charges.

Journell has a history with the law. Last May he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor trespassing charge after a botched drug transaction, according to arrest warrants.
