Remind me again how Philly fans are the worst ones in all of sports?
Wait though—before you do—I have to tell you about the Patriots fan at Gillette Stadium who threw his beer on Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill Sunday night.
Yeah, well, unlike the stadiums in Philly that have jail cells in them, this fine individual had to wait until yesterday to be charged with disorderly conduct for throwing an object at a sporting event.
The Foxborough Police Department announced the charges after the New England Patriots issued a statement earlier Monday saying they helped to identify the fan and—after banning him from the stadium—forwarded his information to law enforcement.
The incident occurred after Hill’s 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown late in the fourth quarter which tied the game at 40-apiece. Hill’s momentum carried him through the end zone to the barrier where fans can stand while watching the game. While some fans were—um, classy enough to just flip the bird within inches of Hill’s face—this genius doused him with his beer.
Hope the guy has enough money for a good lawyer—if not, the 36 bucks he wasted on that beer would have really helped.
