Roger Goodell’s press conference disrupted by Howard Stern prank
About 30 minutes into Roger Goodell’s press conference, a trespasser caused a disturbance and screamed, "Don’t take me to the elevator!" as security hauled him out of the room.
The trespasser, likely referencing the circumstances surrounding the Ray Rice scandal, was immediately escorted out of the news conference and Goodell went back to fielding questions.
Several reporters tweeted that the perpetrator was Benjy Bronk from "The Howard Stern Show." The man can be heard saying, "Ow! Ow! Ow! I’m Benjy. What’s going on?" as the fracas begins.
The bizarre interruption can be seen below:
