After Sunday’s Patriots-Colts game, a Patriots employee escorting coach Bill Belichick off the field appeared to knock a cameraman to the ground.
Now that employee has been reprimanded.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN is reporting that the NFL has reprimanded Patriots Chief Operating Officer of TeamOps Security Mark Briggs over the incident. Mortensen said the league thought a review of the tape was inconclusive as to whether Briggs actually knocked the cameraman down, but apparently the league was concerned enough to warn Briggs to be on his best behavior going forward.
Briggs is a native of Derby in the United Kingdom and a 16-year veteran of the British Army. He has worked for the Patriots since the end of the 2000 season and is in charge, the team says, of “giving visitors to Gillette Stadium a world-class experience.”
Apparently visitors to Lucas Oil Stadium don’t get the same courtesy.
