Steelers Fan Chokes Pregnant Chargers Fan During Scuffle

On Sunday night, a Steelers fan got into a fight with a man in yellow pants and a Chargers blazer. During the shoving match, the Steelers fan grabbed the yellow pants-wearer’s wife by the neck, at which point the fight was quickly broken up before it escalated. The Pittsburgh Current published photos of the choking, which you can see here, and Pittsburgh CBS station KDKA-2 published a video of the incident shortly after.

The Current spoke to Daniel Minshew, the man in the Chargers blazer, who said that his wife is pregnant. “I plan on calling police officials today about filing criminal charges,” he said. “My wife and I attend several road games annually and I myself have been to approximately a dozen away games and have never experienced anything like we did Sunday night.”

The Steelers promised not to let “the aggressors” back into their stadium.

Yes, fans get rowdy at football games, but behavior like this makes everyone wonder if the NFL will ever put a liquor restriction or limit in stadiums during games.
