KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Chiefs dreadful season has angered many fans, and one took the frustration too far. Ronald L. Hall, 65, was charged in Jackson County (Mo.) Court with assault and armed criminal action after the Lees Summit, Mo., resident shot a man after insults were traded during the Chiefs 28-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Hall watched the game at a Lees Summit home with a number of other men, including his son, as the Chiefs dropped their seventh consecutive contest to fall to 1-9. Court documents show drinking was involved, and sharp words were exchanged throughout the afternoon. Hall, known for a short temper, grew angry during the dialogue and shot the victim in the face with a shotgun. The affected man sustained critical injuries, including a stroke. Hall had threatened to shoot others in the past, according to court documents. He was unwilling to leave the house when police arrived, and authorities evacuated residents in the neighborhood as a precaution. A two-month-old baby also was removed from the house with him. The Chiefs, tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the NFLs worst record, are six games behind the Denver Broncos in the AFC West. Coach Romeo Crennels and general manager Scott Piolis job security is perilous at best after the franchises most dismal campaign in recent memory. Fans have bargained with the Chiefs lost season in a variety of ways, but this sad episode took the angst to an unfortunate level.
