Things got a little heated after the New York Jets defeated the New England Patriots in overtime Sunday, ultimately resulting in a male Jets fan punching a female Pats fan in the face.
According to Deadspin.com, the fight started between two female fans in the stands at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. and then moved out into the concourse. It was at that point that beer and clothing were thrown over the balcony.
“The whole thing was shameful it’s a football game and you don’t hit a girl or call her a bitch,” a commentator on Deadspin wrote.
Although the New York Daily News reported that security did not originally go after the guy, a spokesman for the Jets confirmed that the situation was being handled by the New Jersey State Police.
“We are aware of the situation and we do not tolerate that behavior,” the spokesperson said Sunday night after the incident. “Parties involved were detained and this matter is now in the hands of the New Jersey State Police.”
A spokesman for the State Police also confirmed to The New York Post that they were investigating the incident.
