UPDATE: The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police announced on Twitter: “@CMPD has arrested Kyle Adam Maraghy, charged him with simple assault in connection with this incident. He is being taken to Meck jail.”
A young man wearing a Carolina Panthers jersey repeatedly punched an older fan during the Panthers game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The older fan tried to protect his face, but is seen bleeding profusely as onlookers try to stop the assault.

dude bro & his chicka were standing for the entire game. words gradually got more and more escalated. there previously was a single mom and her son between us, they left halfway through the 3rd. after that, the lid was off. the dude took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view. the victim telling the dude bro how they’re being jerks and how rude they are for not sitting. the dude bro turns around and calls the victim a “geriatric fuck”, “faggot”, and “hick”. then sucker punches him right in the face. i don’t know if he got away or left in handcuffs, but i hope it’s the latter. edit: to clarify further, both the puncher and punchee were wearing Panthers attire. The assailant was seated in section 541, row 24, seat 10.
