Media reports are conflicting over what exactly happened with Brandon Backe this weekend in Galveston, but a few things are certain: There was a wedding. People got Tasered. Backe took some hits. (But that's to be expected.)
Was Backe an innocent bystander or a drunk brawler? We're guessing the answer lies somewhere in between, but that's just pure speculation. The only way to figure out what really happened is to put faith in semi-anonymous Internet comments from people who said they were there, or at least that seems to be what KHOU is doing.
On that note, the link for comments is below. Feel free to let us know your version of events. -- Keith Plocek
