The New York Jets/New England Patriots rivalry came to a head after the game at MetLife Stadium last Sunday, when a Jets fan slugged a woman in the face following the Jets’ 30-27 overtime win.
The video, which was also posted on YouTube, was sent to Deadspin with the following context: “Fight started in the stands with two girls fighting. And moved out to where I shot the video. Beer was thrown and clothing over the balcony. Security went after the guy. Didn’t see what happened after that.”
According to a Jets spokesperson, the fan has been detained and the New Jersey state police have opened an investigation into the matter. “We are aware of the situation and we do not tolerate that behavior,” the spokesperson said.
Rumors that the Jets were considering signing the assailant as a second-string quarterback went unconfirmed at press time.
