A Panthers fan has been arrested for punching another fan at last night's game.

Police on Friday arrested a Panthers fan accused of punching another fan in the face and bloodying him during the Panthers-Eagles game - an attack fans caught on video. "We have reviewed videotape of the incident and have identified the perpetrator", Panthers Executive Director of Risk Management Lance Emory said in a statement.

"The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience", Emory said in the statement.

A video on Instagram showed Maraghy, wearing a Cam Newton jersey, standing up as a woman with him argued with a fan seated behind them.

More than 500000 child auto seats recalled
American manufacturer Diono has issued a voluntary product recall on more than 500,000 convertible and booster vehicle seats. Beginning in June of this year, Diono quality assurance tests began returning worrisome results.

The older man was upset that the other fan and the woman he was with were standing throughout the game, according to the person who posted the video. Maraghy then punched the seated man in the face four times. "The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium". Carrigan said after a mother and her son - who were sitting between him and the victim - left, the fight was on.

"The dude took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view", Carrigan said in his post. Blood quickly streams down the seated fan's face. The suspect and his girlfriend allegedly called the seated fan numerous epithets before the fight started. "I feel regret not jumping to action". It bothers me that non-witnesses are making assertions about the video that is absurd.

The incident led to increased talk among National Football League fans online that a few violent and unruly fans ruin the experience from the vast majority of fans who just want to enjoy a game. WSOC contributed to this post.
