Flying Punch 'Bama Mom

I Wasn't Drunk

... And I'd Do It Again!!!

1/5/2014 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



The fearless, flying-punch throwing Alabama woman who attacked a group of Oklahoma fans at the Sugar Bowl has broken her silence ... saying she was NOT drunk when she went airborne and WOULD DO IT AGAIN!!

The woman, Michelle Pritchett -- a photographer and married mother of 3 -- spoke with Yellow Hammer News after footage of her attack went viral ... saying she only got violent after the OU fans began taunting her 16-year-old son.

"What I did was probably not the thing to do. But they were taunting us. They began by going after me. But then they crossed the line and started taunting my 16-year-old son.”

Pritchett says the OU group also called her a "stupid b*tch."

"I’m embarrassed," Pritchett admitted ... "I love The Tide and I apologize to all the players and to Coach Saban and to the entire fan base. I’m sorry."


But despite the fact that she seemed wasted out of her mind ... Michelle insists booze was not a factor saying, "I wasn’t intoxicated ... I want people to know that. I’d had a couple of drinks, but I was not intoxicated.”

As far as regrets go, Michelle says she has none -- "I hate to say it, but I’d do it again if I had to. I’m not going to let anyone go after my son.”

Did not watch this but must say...never ever ever mess with mama bear. Once any situation goes past that "point" logic and reason dont apply.....especially when you're dealing with the person who gave life to the one she would instinctively give hers to protect.

Really ? Were they "attacking her son" or making fun of the TEAM that her and her son were there to support ? There's a HUGE difference and some sports fans take it was a personal insult when you make fun of "their" team..Just saying. I'd like to hear the other side of the story.

Ummm..    

Well this is a tough one.. Without audio I can't make heads or tails on whether she was justified... Violence is never the answer... However, you can say whatever you want about me but if you start taking reckless about my child, there will be a problem .... Just saying... Couldn't help feeling scared for her though... What was she thinking going after all those guys.. This video was crazy...

First, the woman should have gone to the authorities rather than embarrassing herself and family. Then, I find it odd no where can you find the actual audio. Makes me think there is more to this story. I do believe the young men were probably harassing her family. Just goes to show you can film and post anything on the internet and destroy their life forever.
