Video: Loud-mouth fan tossed over railing and bloodied at Giants-49ers game

Half the entertainment at a football game is the fans themselves.

Spectators at Sunday’s Giants-49ers game, which saw the New York team suffer a devastating 31-21 loss to San Francisco, were shocked to witness a brutal confrontation between an unruly fan and stadium security.

The unidentified fan was wearing the Jersey of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins. He and another fan came to the attention of security when they began cursing at Giants players after a fourth-quarter touchdown, NJ.com reports.

Alex Amster, a witness to the altercation, said security officers gave the fan a warning. When he refused to comply, the guards attempted to escort him out of the stadium.

But the Giants fan resisted, continuing his heckling and even attempting to spit on an officer. This led to a struggle in which the fan fell off the railing and onto the ground, with the officer falling on top of him.

“They started punching him and one officer had a bloody nose because of this,” Amster said. “[The fan] got up super bloody and was escorted through the tunnel by the [officers].” The group of officers tased the man as he lay on the ground.

Once security was able to control the aggressive fan, they escorted him out. He was seen bleeding on both sides of his face as he was walked to a nearby tunnel.

Leave it to a good old-fashioned game of football to bring out the best in people.
