Controversy[edit]

Arrest[edit]

During a trip to Green Bay in 1997, Keith was arrested for trespassing at Lambeau Field. While on air, Keith went into the empty stadium and walked on to the field. From the prodding of the on-air hosts, Keith screamed "Jerry Kramer was offsides" and "Bart Starr was not that great". Lambeau security attempted to restrain him and Keith immediately tried to leave the area, only to be arrested by the Green Bay Police Department outside of the stadium.[5]

The Nestor/Keith controversy[edit]

A long-running feud has existed between members of The Ticket and Nestor Aparicio (also known as "Nasty Nestor" and "The Ultimate Douche"), an American sports writer and radio personality. On January 30, 2009, during Super Bowl week in Tampa, Florida, while roaming the Radio Row with a wireless microphone, Keith approached Aparicio in an alleged attempt to bury the hatchet.[6] Aparicio assaulted Keith before the scuffle was broken up by Super Bowl security. The incident was broadcast live during The Ticket's morning show.[7]
