NFL Investigating Horrific Panthers Fan Assault

Shortly before 6 p.m., Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they had arrested Kyle Adam Maraghy, 26, of Charlotte, and charged him with simple assault.

Maraghy is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Police tweeted that Maraghy was being taken to the Mecklenburg County jail.

The suspect is accused of sucker-punching an older fan Thursday night in the upper deck of Bank of America stadium during the Panthers versus Eagles game.

The video shows Maraghy, wearing a Cam Newton jersey, turn around and address an older man seated behind him, wearing a white T-shirt. The victim is a 62-year-old who got into an argument with the 26-year-old because him and the woman standing next to him refused to sit down, and were obstructing his view of the game. He had been jailed on a $1,500 bond.

He added, "That's what the 15 seconds didn't show", with regard to the video of the altercation posted on Instagram. After a few seconds, the fan in the jersey throws multiple punches at the victim, causing a flow of blood from the man's head.

The NFL told Ian Rapoport it's working with the Carolina Panthers security team - saying, "We take all of these very seriously". "The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium".

'We are aware of it and are in contact with club security, ' NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said, per Pro Football Talk.

Channel 9 looked into Maraghy's past and found he was charged with assault in 2013 but those charges were dropped. Carrigan claims that the fight broke out in section 541.
