Panthers Have Identified Violent Fan & Contacted Police, Victim Files Police Report
The ugly scene that played out in the nosebleed section of Bank of America Stadium has since attracted the attention of local police and the Panthers organization.
The Panthers say they have now identified the culprit who sucker punched another man in the face during Thursday night’s game between the Eagles and Panthers.
“We have reviewed video tape of the incident and have identified the perpetrator. We are working with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department to pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law,” Panthers Executive Director of Risk Management Lance Emory said. “The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience. The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium.”
According to TMZ, the fan that was left bloodied has filed a police report.
“The victim in the Carolina Panthers stadium attack filed a police report — claiming he only suffered “minor injuries” after getting socked in the face during “Thursday Night Football.”
TMZ Sports has obtained the report which describes the victim as a 62-year-old man — who claims he was assaulted at 11 PM.
The victim was treated by a medic at the scene.
The attacker’s name is not listed on the report as the victim told police he didn’t know the man before the incident. The Panthers say they have positively ID’d him and are working with police. “
