Looks like Money isn’t the only Buffalo Bills employee in trouble with the law these days. And it’s definitely not who you’d expect.
John M. Gurtler Jr., the public address announcer for the Buffalo Bills and voice of the Buffalo Bandits lacrosse team, was arrested early Sunday along with his wife and teenage son after they allegedly hosted a large underage post-prom party at the family’s Orchard Park home, Orchard Park police reported late Monday.
Gurtler and his wife, Mary, both 54, as well as 18-year-old John M. Gurtler III, were arrested at their Orchard Terrace home about 2 a.m. and charged with unlawfully dealing with a child. They are accused of providing alcohol to people less than 21 years old.
The charge is a misdemeanor that upon conviction can carry a sentence of up to a year in jail.
The Gurtlers were allegedly found to be hosting a party attended by as many as 80 teenagers. Officers reported observing several kegs of beer, as well as more than 150 open containers of alcoholic beverages at the scene. Numerous unopened containers were seized as evidence, police said.
So basically, he tried to be “Cool Dad” and throw a drinking party for his son. And then 80 people showed up, their neighbors got ticked and he’s riding away in handcuffs. Sounds like your typical prom night to me.
