Fan violence continues to be an issue at NFL stadiums.
According to PittsburghCurrent.com, a male Steelers fan choked a pregnant Chargers fan during Sunday night’s game at Heinz Field.
The details and photos can be seen here. We’re posting this not only because it’s newsworthy, but also in the hopes of identifying the man who has his hand on the woman’s throat.
If you have any information as to the man’s identity, let us know.
While these incidents involve a very small percentage of people who attend NFL games, one incident is too many, and teams need to do more to ensure that things like this don’t happen. While no assault can be prevented, every assault can be investigated, solved, and punished.
UPDATE 2:36 p.m. ET: Heinz Field has issued a statement on the matter. “We strive to make events at Heinz Field safe for our guests. This type of behavior seen in the photo is unacceptable and something we do not condone on our property. We are working with Heinz Field security as well as local authorities to gather more information on this particular incident as the Pittsburgh Police determines whether or not to press charges, and we will ensure those involved as the aggressors will not be permitted back into our stadium.”
