Things got really heated between Steelers and Bengals players during their playoff game at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati on Saturday night. So heated that the game was basically decided by two personal foul penalties that were given to Bengals players Vontaze Burfict and Adam “Pacman” Jones. Jones didn’t agree with the penalty that was called on him, but he definitely deserved to be flagged for losing his cool at the end of the game.
While all of that was going on, it sounds like things were getting just as heated between fans of the Steelers and Bengals who were at the game. Cincinnati.com is reporting that six people were arrested at the game, including one Bengals fan who allegedly urinated on a fellow fan sitting in front of him. According to the report, Martin Cooke, 33, was charged with disorderly conduct and assault after he peed on the fan and then got into a fight with him.
And believe it or not, that actually wasn’t the worst altercation to take place. According to Cincinnati.com, there were also several incidents that involved male fans fighting with female fans. Bengals fan Jared McCarty, 19, was arrested after he allegedly stole a female Bengals fan’s hat and then punched her during an incident that took place at the entrance to the stadium. And after the game ended, Steelers fan Tyler Matthys, age unknown, was arrested near the stadium’s exit after he allegedly punched a woman.
So…yeah. All in all, another great showing for NFL fans, who have shown over and over and over again this season that they don’t always know how to act. You can check out Cincinnati.com’s full report of all the incidents at the Steelers/Bengals game here.
