A video posted on Facebook shows Washington and Dallas fans fighting after their Monday night matchup in Landover, Md., and the videographer claims a Cowboys fan was stabbed.
The video showed a man in a Jason Witten jersey sitting on the ground being attended to by someone in a Washington jacket. Mike Vaughn, who posted the video, said in the clip that the fan was stabbed and that there was a knife on the ground. Authorities confirmed to Fox 5 DC that a knife was recovered in the concourse and they are investigating. Two arrests were made.
“Wowwwww. This place is a war zone right now. Fights breaking out everywhere. One dude got stabbed,” Vaughn wrote on his Facebook page.
“We are aware of an altercation that took place at FedEx Field following Monday’s game.” Washington said in a statement issued to Fox 5 DC. “We thank members of the Prince George’s County Police Department who responded promptly to break up the altercation and arrested both men involved. Neither sustained injuries that required hospitalization. We will continue to gather more information on the matter and ensure the safety of all fans at FedEx Field.”
Fan violence at sporting events is unfortunately nothing new. After a Monday Night Football game in Philadelphia in October, a Giants fan was knocked out by an Eagles fan after the Giants fan kept egging him on. The Eagles fan went up to him and threw three quick punches to knock the Giants fan to the ground.
