Chris Christie once again drew the sports world’s attention on Sunday, as the New Jersey governor was caught on video confronting a Chicago Cubs fan at a Milwaukee Brewers game.

In the video, Christie, whose son works for the Brewers, sarcastically calls the fan a “big shot.”

The fan, later identified as Brad Joseph, explained to WISN why the former presidential candidate approached him.

“When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was already quite a bit past me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked,” Joseph said. “I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He then turned around and walked all the way back towards me and got up in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute.”

According to Joseph, Christie also asked him if he wanted to “do something” or “start something.”

“(He) was yelling at me. First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny,” Joseph told WISN. “Then he started calling me a tough guy.”

This isn’t the first time Christie has drawn the ire of fans at a baseball game. Several weeks ago, he was booed at a New York Mets game after catching a foul ball.
