New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Wednesday that dumping nachos on a Chicago Cubs fan was an "option," referring to a face-to-face confrontation caught on video over the weekend at a baseball game in Milwaukee.
Christie spoke briefly on the incident while at an event in Trenton, N.J.
"I didn't dump the nachos on him or anything, which was an option," Christie said.
Video was posted Sunday on social media of Christie getting in a Cubs' fan's face while holding a plastic container of nachos. "Yeah, you're a big shot," Christie said to the man before walking off.
Christie said he was repeatedly heckled by the fan, identified as Brad Joseph.
"I will take a certain amount of abuse," said Christie. "You're a public official you have to. But usually it's one. You get one shot to call me a name or curse me out."
Christie has had a rough time of it at baseball games lately. He was booed after he caught a foul ball at a Mets-Cardinals game on July 18.
Christie is nearing the end of his second term as New Jersey governor amid poor approval ratings. He is not seeking re-election in 2017.
