WASHINGTON – There’s certainly no love lost between division rivals the New York Jets and New England Patriots, but a fan of one team was caught on tape taking things too far.
After the Jets edged the Patriots 30-27 Sunday in overtime, a skirmish broke out in which a man wearing a Jets jersey can be seen punching a female fan in the side of the head. The woman appears to go after the Jets fan before she is struck.
A Jets spokesman tells the New York Daily News the organization is aware of the situation, those involved were detained and the incident “is now in the hands of the New Jersey State Police.”
Footage of the fight reportedly was obtained by Deadspin, whose tipster says the fight began in the stands between two girls.
