Daughter Of Former Redskins Owner Arrested After Anti-Semitic Tirade
Jacqueline Kent Cooke, the 29-year old daughter of former Redskins and Lakers owner, Jack Kent Cooke, was reportedly arrested for felony assault in Manhattan following a New Year’s Eve altercation at Caravaggio restaurant in NYC. Her father owned the Redskins from 1961 to 1997 and also owned the Lakers from ’65 to ’79.
According to the New York Daily News, the millionaire NFL heiress shouted anti-semitic remarks at an elderly woman and then bloodied the woman’s son with her purse outside of the restaurant.
Matthew Haberkorn, a 52-year old lawyer, told the NY Daily News that he and his family were waiting at the coat check when Jacqueline Kent Cooke yelled at his mother, “Hurry up, Jew.” Haberkorn’s wife asked Cooke, “What did you say?” to which she repeated, “Hurry up, Jew. I got places to be.”
The situation escalated outside of the restaurant after Cooke’s boyfriend allegedly said, “Happy bat mitzvah, girls,” to Haberkorn’s daughters. Shortly after, one of Haberkorn’s daughters started filming the incident in which Cooke’s boyfriend tried to intervene.
